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

Discovery is an important element in litigation and can help you turn the tides of a case in your favor.

Discovery (and especially electronic discovery/e-discovery) is a key element of all modern litigation. Even the smallest matters typically involve some discovery, and the largest matters are largely driven by the discovery process. Yet, many paraprofessionals (and most lawyers) do not receive any practical grounding in the fundamentals of discovery, much less advice on the practical steps necessary to manage a discovery project successfully. This topic will help paraprofessionals and junior lawyers understand the big picture associated with the discovery process, their role in that process, and how they can assist senior lawyers and clients manage the process successfully. Discovery (and especially e-discovery) is a trap for the unwary. Costs can easily mount on a poorly-managed process, and may even result in spoliation sanctions. This topic is an essential introduction for anyone interested in developing the skills necessary to master the discovery process and for learning potential solutions.
