About the Book

In the follow up to his acclaimed, best selling book, E-discovery: Current Trends and Cases, author Ralph Losey once again examines the ever-changing world of electronic discovery, and goes on to explain the latest trends and cases effecting e-discovery in an easy-to-understand manner. This new book is derived from a popular Internet blog on an e-discovery by a senior attorney at a large national law firm and includes readers comments on the materials in the book, and the authors replies straight from the authors Blog.

Introduction to e-Discovery: New Cases, Ideas, and Techniques begins with a fundamental premises that teams are the most efficient and effective way to do e-discovery. An e-Discovery team is an interdisciplinary group of lawyers and IT technicians, usually joined by one or more representatives of business management. The book explains in a step-by-step fashion how this team should be assembled, and how the various tasks of electronic discovery can be more easily accomplished using the team.

In addition the book examines:
" Self-organization and development of evidence preservation protocols
" New articles of interest on e-discovery teams
" The future of e-discovery suggested by a recent litigation survey
" How negligent e-records management is creating stunning business risks
" E-discovery at the Harvard Club in New York City
" New California proposals for e-discovery laws
" The conflict between our rules of discovery and the privacy laws of the rest of the world
" The limitations of checklists and how to work best using them, and much, much more!

Importantly, the book discusses two new e-discovery guides for judges and how everyone involved in e-discovery, not just judges, should become familiar with them.

No one can operate effectively in the court rooms of tomorrow without a good understanding of wheres, hows and whys of digital evidence. As a cover-to-cover read to learn more about the hot topics and latest case law in e-discovery, this book can help provide that understanding. After a read through, this book can be used as a reference, with its appendix of useful reference materials to look up cases and arguments to use in daily practice.

Introduction to e-Discovery is written in an easy-to-read style, making it perfect for anyone interested in e-discovery. This book is suitable for non-lawyers, too, including paralegals, law students, IT experts, and executives of all kinds in the growing fields of e-discovery and information management. Nothing is having a more profound effect on the field of law today than e-discovery. Make sure you stay on top of the latest trends with this important new book.
