Law, Evidence, Procedure, and Best Practice

Course level : Short courses

The way evidence is gathered has a major impact on successful regulatory control, enforcement and/or prosecution.

In partnership with Bond Solon, this practical, structured course equips delegates who have regulatory, enforcement and/or prosecution responsibilities with essential knowledge of the law, evidence, and procedure for their day-to-day roles in conducting investigations.

You’ll learn how to gather evidence to best-practice standards so that it’s relevant, admissible, and credible.
