How those challenges are addressed and resolved often impacts the cost of litigation as well as the ultimate outcome of litigation. This session looks at cooperation, proportionality, search, production and admissibility of ESI, examines recent case law and applicable rules, and suggests means to limit cost and present effective arguments. 

Learning Objectives:  
  1. Appreciate what it means to cooperate with opposing counsel when ESI is in issue and why courts expect cooperation

  3. Recognize the form or forms in which ESI might be produced, the pros and cons of each, and how to request a particular form or forms
  4. Appreciate the hurdles to admissibility of particular ESI as well as the foundation required for admissibility
