E-DISCOVERY SERIES, PART II OF III - COLLECTING AND PROCESSING ELECTRONIC DATA IN LITIGATION
You have identified the relevant electronic information you need to get for your case. You have taken steps to make sure it is preserved. Now what? You still need to get it. Once you get it, what do you do with it? In this second of a three-part series on e-discovery, our panel of presenters will explore how to collect electronic data in a legally and forensically defensible manner, how to manage the review of electronic data to increase efficiency and reduce costs, and how to avoid traps for the unwary. The panel will also discuss unique problems associated with collecting web page information, social media content, and data from various types of mobile devices. Finally, the presenters will discuss examples and features of specialized software available for law firms of all sizes.
NOTE: Part II will pick-up where Part I left off. If you were not able to attend Part I, we strongly encourage you to purchase the self-paced online MCLE recording prior to this Part 2 session.
