The digital revolution continues to re-shape and re-define the process of civil litigation. With the rise of electronically stored information comes an array of issues relating to the management, search, and presentation of such digital information.
In the pre-trial context comes the issue of using computer software to assist with searching electronically stored data; this issue is particularly important where there is a very large database. In the trial preparation and trial conduct context there are issues relating to the fidelity and admissibility of evidence in an electronic format.
This comprehensive one-day program will quickly bring practitioners up to speed on current issues and best practices for effectively managing electronic evidence in the litigation process.
At this course you will learn:
what electronic evidence is and the challenges it presents to litigators
about eDiscovery and how this process raises a new array of expectations for counsel, clients, and all parties
the admissibility principles of evidence and how they apply in the electronic realm
about issues surrounding the authentication of electronically stored information
how to manage electronic information from the internet

about ethics and professionalism issues around electronic information
