I would like to thank our hosts, Global Legal Discovery for inviting me to speak on Friday at their educational e-discovery focused CLE seminar. I enjoyed speaking about taking a proactive approach to e-discovery project planning and promised the attendees a few notes and websites to visit for additional information.
Recommended book: E-Discovery Records Management
We talked about metadata and why it is important to consider it when planning for production requirements. Here are a few good resources:
We discussed the value of communication and setting a protocol earlier than later for how and when the team will update the project status, objectives, scope, schedule and resources.
The value in proper planning is in avoiding costly budget overruns, re-work, sanctions and potentially, malpractice. If you have questions about Friday’s CLE, feel free to contact me at erika at learnaboutediscovery.com
