Course Description

Electronically stored information (ESI) has become one of the most complex, time-consuming, and costly aspects of litigation. The world of ESI is rapidly changing and expanding, with new technologies being developed all the time. In order to fulfill their ethical duty of competence, attorneys must be aware of the benefits, risks, and latest developments in technology and ESI. Successfully navigating the challenges of ESI can help manage the cost of litigation and can impact the ultimate outcome of litigation. This program, taught by Kristen Weil, the Senior Managing Associate of the Dentons New York City office, reviews recent case law highlighting ESI challenges, and suggests practical tips for handling ESI.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the ethical obligations of MRPC 1.1 to be aware of the benefits and risks to technology and ESI in litigation
  2. Discuss recent case law on challenges of ESI
  3. Identify practical tips and best practices for managing ESI in litigation

Finally! An online CLE in a topic relevant to my field (eDiscovery/Litigation). This was very useful and a much-appreciated departure from the odd topics I've had to endure from other online CLE vendors in the past.
