On Thursday, November 29, Robinson Bradshaw's Kate G. Maynard presented Preservation of Electronically-Stored Information at the North Carolina Bar Association program entitled, e-Discovery 101: The Basics of Handling Discovery in an Increasingly Digital World (2012).
With the ever-increasing prevalence of electronically-stored information (“ESI”) in our society and the recent adoption of state rules to govern the discovery of ESI in North Carolina, electronic discovery is an inescapable feature of modern litigation that has developed rapidly over the past decade. Understanding the various components of the e-Discovery process and their attendant legal obligations is essential to the effective representation of clients who are involved — or may become involved — in civil litigation. This program was designed to give practitioners an overview and basic understand of the primary constituent elements of the e-Discovery process, as well as practical strategies for managing the process.
