The New York City Bar Association is planning a CLE seminar titled Electronic Discovery: Technology, Strategy & Emerging Standards.

The program will take place on Tuesday, January 29 from 6 to 8:15 p.m. at the House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street, New York City.

The presentation covers how to identify the relevant electronic data within a client's IT system; the methods and strategies for preserving and producing documents and e-mail from computers, servers, removable media and backup tapes, and the role of computer forensics in electronic discovery. The key legal issues surrounding the duty to preserve evidence, including the recycling of backup tapes, the backdrop of criminal obstruction laws and new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are addressed, with real case examples of problems to avoid in electronic discovery.

Instructors will be Eric M. Friedberg and Jennifer R. Martin, Stroz Friedberg, LLC.
