Description

This course provides a basic understanding of the legal and practical parameters of eDiscovery and electronic case management. Information sources are growing rapidly, including social media, voicemail, instant messaging, removable media, blogs, smart phones, etc. This skills-based course examines the legal and technological issues surrounding the use of electronically stored information during the litigation process. Students conduct mock interviews of company CIOs and brief and argue motions involving eDiscovery issues. Students also review and evaluate efforts made by professional groups and the courts to create reasonable parameters allowing parties to comply with their discovery obligations and ethical responsibilities while implementing a fundamental change in the adversary system from one of confrontation to one of cooperation.
