Protect Your Evidence From Spoliation

Understand the unique challenges associated with your duty to preserve evidence.

Almost every lawyer has a basic understanding of the duty to preserve evidence. This obligation is particularly important with respect to the preservation of electronically stored information, which presents unique technical challenges for practitioners. This material provides an overview of the duty to preserve electronically stored information under both the common law and recently enacted amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. This information would be essential to lawyers who regularly practice litigation to ensure that their clients comply with critical preservation standards.
