Understanding E-Discovery and Litigation Technology, the first of two cohorts in the E-Discovery Certificate, introduces litigators and litigation staff to the rules and technology associated with the dynamic legal area of eDiscovery. This course presents each stage of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) from Information Governance to Production of Documents, and provides opportunities to apply these stages to well-defined case scenarios. In addition, this course emphasizes the importance of records preservation and the necessary technical tools for relevance-based document review in preparation for a Meet and Confer with opposing counsel and records requests. Selecting an eDiscovery vendor and calculating project costs associated with all aspects of collection, processing, and production will be the final components of eDiscovery covered by this course.
