Ensuring the preservation of electronically stored information (ESI) is a key component of discovery today. Litigants who fail to preserve ESI can face severe consequences, including monetary and evidentiary sanctions, the effects of which can last long beyond a single case. Paralegals and legal assistants often play the role of 'case manager' during discovery and are tasked with the management of the ESI preservation and collection process. Recognizing the potential issues and concerns in the preservation and collection of ESI is critical to an effective electronic discovery strategy.

This live audio conference introduces those fulfilling the case manager role to these considerations and helps those persons understand the complexities and pitfalls of eDiscovery projects of any size. This live audio conference addresses recent case law and emerging technologies, such as cloud storage and social media, and what strategies litigants employ to successfully manage ESI preservation and collection.

Join eDiscovery attorneys Scott Carlson and Sarah Knight for an insightful and practical discussion of these issues using real-life examples and illustrations.
