New questions constantly arise about how to effectively and fairly handle the potentially overwhelming demands and costs of e-discovery in litigation. This program will provide an overview of the development of e-discovery law and a look to where that law is heading. An outstanding faculty of experienced lawyers, judges, and e-discovery professionals will provide an inside look at the current state of e-discovery, give tips for avoiding pitfalls litigants have encountered in the years since the passage of the federal rules, and discuss important ethical issues in light of recent court decisions imposing discovery sanctions and outlining the duties of outside and in-house counsel.

This seminar is designed to provide counsel with the understanding necessary to advise clients on state, federal and international e-discovery strategic and technology issues. Participants will take away practical strategies they can use when called upon to provide guidance on e-retention policies or e-discovery.
