E-Discovery – 6714

Familiarity with all aspects of e-discovery is no longer optional for new attorneys and courts are increasingly penalizing attorneys who fail to satisfy their e-discovery obligations. The outcomes of many cases turn on a few key electronic documents that can be missed if the e-discovery process is not carefully pursued. This seminar will follow the life cycle of a case, covering topics such as document preservation, collection, search, review, and production. Students will participate in mock client interviews and meet and confers, receive lectures on important topics such as spoliation, and observe demonstrations of available document search and review technologies. The seminar will also include guest speakers on topics such as an in-house counsel's perspective on gathering electronic documents.
