Learn About E-Discovery

learn something new everyday

The 7th Circuit E-Discovery Pilot Program

Learning about e-discovery requires both a practical and theoretical approach. We need the practical knowledge to complete our everyday tasks. We need someone to think through the theoretical knowledge in order to improve our everyday practices. There are a few electronic discovery “think tanks” around the country the most notable is The Sedona Conference.  Recently, the principles, updates, theories, and ideas coming from the 7th Circuit E-Discovery Pilot Program have taken center stage in leading the charge on a number of e-discovery project management issues of greatest concern.  Topics e-discovery project managers should pay specific attention to include:

  • discovery conference (meet n confer/ FRCP Rule 26f) best practices
  • solidifying the role of the e-discovery or ESI liason (litigation support professionals)
  • the work of the technology sub-committee
