Paralegal's Guide to Evidence: Gathering, Protecting and Spoliation

November 20

Don’t let improper discovery practices hinder your case – ensure your preservation techniques are up to snuff.

Ensuring the preservation of electronically stored information (ESI) is a key component of discovery today. Litigants who fail to preserve ESI can face severe consequences, including monetary and evidentiary sanctions, the effects of which can last long beyond a single case. Paralegals and legal assistants often play the role of case manager during discovery and are tasked with the management of the ESI preservation and collection process. Recognizing the potential issues and concerns in the preservation and collection of ESI is critical to an effective electronic discovery strategy. This topic will begin with an overview of recent case law highlighting some of the pitfalls of failing to preserve, and continue with a discussion of effective preservation techniques involving traditional sources of ESI, as well as emerging technologies, such as cloud storage and social media, and strategies to employ for the successful management of ESI preservation and collection in cases of all sizes. Join us for an insightful and practical discussion of these issues using real-life examples and illustrations.
