This course “Civil Procedure for eDiscovery Technologists and Experts” breaks down eDiscovery concepts and how it relates to the legal field. Throughout this course, you can expect to gain a clear understanding of eDiscovery in preserving online evidence, cloud discovery, civil procedure, and best practices.
Electronic discovery, also known as e-discovery or ediscovery; is the process of obtaining and exchanging evidence in a legal case or investigation. For law firms and other organizations, eDiscovery can streamline the review and analysis process and increase efficiency overall. Examples of the kinds of items that are typical in eDiscovery are emails, instant messaging threads, documents, accounting, CAD/CAM files, websites, and other information that could be considered evidence in a lawsuit. Lastly, modern technology included in eDiscovery is “raw data” and “metadata,” which forensic investigators can review for hidden evidence.
Understanding civil procedure in eDiscovery as a technologist can impact the results of a case and your relationship with a client. As organizational use of technology continues to grow, understanding the ins and outs from both sides of the isle increasingly becomes important.
Experts will educate students on how the use of the cloud can be valuable in the eDiscovery process, how to implement eDiscovery beyond the standards applications in cybersecurity and compliance, and how lawyers can make decisions based on what is the best for the clients to avoid potential pitfalls in the discovery process.
