LAW - 819E Introduction to eDiscovery

2 unit(s)
E-Discovery or Electronic Discovery refers to the identification, collection and production of electronically stored information in response to a request for production in a law suit or investigation. The processes and technologies around eDiscovery are often complex because of the volume and dynamic nature of data. This course examines 1) the case law landscape following the 2006 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure which were designed to foster cooperation and early discussion on issues involving electronically stored information; 2) the proposed new amendments to these same rules; and 3) the surrounding technologies and procedures required to preserve, collect, process, review and produce electronic evidence. The class will follow the chronology of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, with interludes for guest speakers on Computer Forensics and Project Management. Prerequisite(s): LAW 804 Evidence
