Abstract

The field of digital forensics is growing in the Middle East which is shown by the establishment of technical digital forensic programs in various universities. Even though these programs are important for the development and advancement of the field they are overlooking the legal aspect of e-crimes and digital forensics in UAE. This paper discusses available law programs and its relations to e-crimes and digital forensics, analyzing the implications caused by the lack of proper e-crimes and digital forensics educational materials in UAE law programs. Even though there are efforts made to overcome this gap between the legal and the technical aspect of digital forensics by creating individual courses it still lacks a strong educational law program preparing the judicial system to face these crimes in a more effective manner. This paper also discusses the possible improvement on the curricula of law programs. Copyright 2013 ACM.
