New NALA ACP Program: e-Discovery
$250 for NALA members/$300 non members
Electronic discovery is the process of identifying and producing relevant, electronically stored information (ESI) in litigation. Advances in technology and exponential growth of reliance on ESI over traditional paper documents are continually increasing the scope, expense, and prominence of e-discovery. As the volume of ESI continues to expand, the costs to preserve, collect, review and produce it will only increase in the future. Developments in ESI technology and discovery have created a dynamic field posing significant challenges to courts, legal professionals, IT professionals, and litigants.
In this course, you’ll learn all the essential concepts of e-discovery and the obligations imposed on litigants to preserve, collect, review, and produce ESI in the discovery process. You’ll examine the types and characteristics of ESI, along with methods and systems for complying with each step in the e-discovery process. Building on what you’ve learned, you’ll research developing issues and trends in rules and case law and apply them to fact-based exercise scenarios and case studies.
Course modules are:
