Electronically stored information (ESI) is everywhere. Not surprisingly, ESI is a common feature of civil litigation and disputes and misunderstandings arise on a daily basis about discovery of ESI. Model Rule of Professional Conduct 1.1 speaks of the competence of lawyers and, as amended in 2012, requires lawyers to be aware of the benefits and risks of technology.
What does it mean for an attorney to be competent in terms of ESI? What conversations should (s)he have with her or his client and opposing counsel in order to frame and respond to discovery requests? How should an attorney undertake a search for ESI or describe how (s)he wants it produced? What should an attorney do to protect against inadvertent production of privileged information or work product?This session explores these and other questions through in the context of e-discovery and Rule 1.1.
Great presenters! Really appreciated Mr. Hedges's experience.
Thorough and well done.
Very practical presentation. I'm currently representing a municipality where there is tons of ESI.
Very good course
good coverage of ediscovery and spoliation
Conversational style teaching by two experienced attorneys. They covered a lot of important material in a pleasant, easy to listen to and learn manner.Thank you.
Excellent presentation and materials that all litigators need to know in today's world controlled by instant communication methods.
A very good introduction to current e discovery and Sedona
I like the back and forth of two speakers
Great primer on e-discovery ethical obligations
Excellent presentation, and it really opens one's eyes regarding the need for knowledge of ESI and the degree of sophistication required to comply with the Rules of Professional Conduct!!! Way over the head of some of us born in the '40's!!!
This is a very interesting series of presentations. All attorneys need to be trained in ESI rules, especially what needs to be preserved and how to ensure that you don't compromise your client's interests.
Kristen is very knowledgeable and communicates well
Again, excellent interaction between the presenters.
