Electronic Evidence and Discovery Seminar (3)

As the “computer age” progresses, more and more information is electronically exchanged and stored. Courts have only recently begun to adapt discovery and evidentiary rules to the challenges of vast amounts of electronically stored information (ESI). These challenges continue to grow as technology changes. This course will bring students to the cutting edge on several fronts: how to manage ESI before litigation is anticipated; how that changes once litigation is anticipated; the exchange of ESI during discovery; how to avoid waiver of privileges; and how to use ESI in deposition and trial. Students will analyze the leading cases, and existing and pending rules and prepare several drafting assignments, including motions and supporting memoranda. Writing done for this seminar will not satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement. P/C: Civil Procedure and Evidence
