Do you find eDiscovery intimidating? Have you recently passed on a case based on the sheer volume of data? Have you been passed over on a case because of your lack of personal experience in electronic discovery? These are types of questions RVM can answer for you.

In conjunction with the Brooklyn Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education program, RVM presented Taking the Fear out of eDiscovery on June 4th, 2015. The CLE faculty for the program were Tim McCorry, a RVM Forensic Engineer, Talia T. Page, Esq., RVM’s Training Specialist, and John Ogden, Esq. of Falcon Singer in New Jersey.

Mr. McCorry and Ms. Page spoke to some of the key eDiscovery elements attorneys need to know in order to successfully represent their clients in the digital age, while Mr. Ogden provided the litigator’s perspective, sharing insights and lessons learned from his own first brush with eDiscovery.

Attendees were exposed to the eDiscovery Reference Model (EDRM) and advised on what their responsibilities are with regard to identification of electronically stored information, preservation and legal hold, forensic collection, data processing, document review, and production. The class provided attendees with a better understanding of the technologies and options available to them in the eDiscovery process, which could prove invaluable going forward into case planning or in their next meet-and-confer.
