In this seminar we will discuss the basics of e-Discovery. It’s a hot
topic and everyone wants you to know about it and know how to do it,
even if you don’t actually “have” to do it as part of your job. You
might be surprised how much e-discovery is happening around you all day
every day even outside of the office.
The problem is, most e-discovery seminars assume that you already know a little bit about e-discovery and skip over the basics, or they teach you a little bit about e-discovery but the real focus is on selling you their e-discovery system. In this beginners level seminar we will talk about the differences between discovery and e-discovery, how e-discovery works, why it’s an issue and how it impacts paralegals. We will learn about where ESI is found (if you don’t know what ESI is, you need to take this seminar NOW!), who has it and who is responsible for it. We will talk about all kinds of e-discovery terminology… metadata, native formats, hash values, de-NISTing, meet and confers, some best practices and more.
