This interactive program is designed to educate in-house counsel, executives, paralegals, and IT professionals about e-discovery, the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and steps that they should be taking now to achieve litigation readiness and reduce liability exposure. Through a series of videotaped vignettes, participants can see what to do and what not to do with regard to electronic records in litigation. A series of 5-10 minute vignettes provide snapshots throughout the life of a case, from first filing and service of a complaint all the way through trial. The scenarios and mistakes made in the sample case were drawn from real life examples.

The majority of the program is presented in a workshop format that invites comments and questions from the audience together with expert commentary from our panelists from CGOC, PSS Systems and K&L Gates. The final segment of the program is dedicated to outlining steps and tools available for companies to help protect themselves from e-discovery risks and costs.
