        Abstract

On 30 January 2019 the Council of Europe adopted guidelines on electronic evidence
in civil and administrative law (hereinafter the Guidelines). The article summarizes
and analyses this soft law instrument and explains why its creation is important for the
proper administration of justice and how it addresses and reflects technological devel-
opments, new business models and evolving case-law. Several conclusions have been
identified regarding how use of the Guidelines will address current practical problems
for courts and attorneys while maintaining full compliance with important principles
like the right to a fair trial, protection of private life and national laws of the member
states.
