Join us on April 21st from Noon to 1:30 PM for a CLE presentation at the offices of Shearman and Sterling.
Best Practices of e-Discovery: Under the 2015 Revised Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
This free Continuing Legal Education course from Kiersted gets attorneys up-to-date on civil procedure requirements, and how they affect e-Discovery obligations. Attorneys will also learn how to use technology to improve review efficiency and accuracy, identify potentially relevant data, and prepare for “Meet and Confer” obligations.
Training is vital.
Litigators must continue to educate themselves on new developments in the law, and develop basic levels of competence in dealing with e-Discovery issues.
Electronically Stored Information (ESI) is not organized in a manner that takes into account Rules of Evidence and Procedure. Yet, this evidence must be retained, and is discoverable.
Structures of files and multiple document sources make it difficult to establish an effective e-Discovery protocol. Suggested “Best Practices” for the review and production of electronic evidence will be provided during this course.
Increased federal and state legislation impose stiff civil and criminal fines and penalties for failure to identify, preserve, and/or produce relevant and non-privileged ESI.
Courts are struggling to develop a correct balance between the responsibility imposed on outside counsel, and the actions of the corporate client. This program is designed to assist both in-house counsel, as well as outside counsel.
Presented by Joseph C. Bartolo, J.D., Regional Manager at Kiersted / Systems will provide:
- Easy-to-understand explanations of e-Discovery.
- Highlights of current developments in court decisions relating to use of ESI evidence.
- Visual depictions of document review techniques designed to facilitate the review and production of ESI.
- Descriptions of use of technology to assist with satisfying the requirements set forth under the rules of civil procedure.
- Discussion of “Best Practices” being used to prepare for the “Meet and Confer” stage of litigation.
This presentation is eligible for 1 NY State CLE credit in the category of “Areas of Professional Practice."
We hope you can make it!
