Seminar - 3rd Year PriorityFull Year Course:
The discovery process has undergone a revolutionary change in the last quarter-century. Today, the vast majority of documents are created, stored and retrieved electronically, and the sheer volume of electronically-stored information ("ESI") has multiplied exponentially. This explosion in the volume of ESI has raised a host of legal, ethical and technological challenges for litigators and courts alike. This seminar will address many of the pressing legal issues that electronic discovery raises, including the creation, preservation and production of ESI; the distribution of the costs of e-discovery; the risk of spoliation; and the ethical and privilege issues that arise in connection with e-discovery.
