Description:
Do you find eDiscovery intimidating? Have you recently passed on, or been passed up for a case based on the sheer volume of data or a lack of personal experience in electronic discovery?
This informative CLE will help familiarize small and medium sized law firms with the terminology, technology and concepts involved with eDiscovery. Topics covered will include a discussion of data forensics, which is the process of collecting electronic evidence defensibly while maintaining a strict chain of custody, and the importance of metadata which can make or break an eDiscovery case. We will talk about how to process that data once it has been collected to allow it to be reviewed efficiently , as well as the process of reviewing documents electronically. Finally we will discuss the methods and options for producing this discovery to your adversary. The entire presentation will include a focus on cost-saving techniques and methods for more efficient review.

At the conclusion, you should have a better understanding of the technologies and options available in the eDiscovery process, which could prove invaluable going forward into case planning or your next meet-and-confer.
