E-Discovery, Litigation Holds, & Metadata 24/7 On-demand Downloadable CLE

Approved for 2.0 Florida Bar CLE Credits & 1.5 Georgia Bar CLE Credits


All trial lawyers must understand and advise clients on the role of discovery in litigation. The laws governing electronic discovery, more commonly known as "e-discovery" have been updated to reflect technological advancements in the practice. At the same time, every computer application and platform we use generates metadata. Thus, metadata issues are inevitable whenever client-created electronic documents are at issue in e-discovery in civil litigation, government inquiries and public-records-act requests. Metadata comes to the fore at each phase of the e-discovery process, including in inadvertent disclosures, meet-and-confer, culling/reviewing/coding, and planning. This teleconference provides guidance so attorneys and legal professionals can easily grasp the current requirements mandated under the law, revised e-discovery practices, concerns involving metadata, and compliance required for the retention and destruction of electronically stored information. This seminar will examine the full extent of the duty to preserve electronic evidence and provide practical strategies for streamlining efforts to minimize costs and time in e-discovery. Our distinguished and experienced panel of attorneys will discuss the latest trends in legal hold letters, metadata, document management, and means to use electronic discovery to your client's advantage.
