Electronic discovery (or e-discovery) is the process of identifying, collecting, and producing digital information in response to a request for production in a legal proceeding. This information can include anything from emails, social media, texts and cell phone data, global positioning system (GPS) data, documents, presentations, databases, voicemail, apps, or any other digital record. At the federal level, e-discovery is governed primarily by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Lawyers dealing with cases of all sizes need to be familiar with the tools and methods of e-discovery, as sorting through thousands of emails and other electronic records has become a vital aspect of the litigation process. E-discovery is now ubiquitous; the provision of e-discovery tools has become a massive market, with the global e-discovery market expected to reach over $20 billion by 2024.
All attorneys involved in litigation or investigation are likely to have some exposure to e-discovery during their careers. Because so much of daily life is now online, it is inevitable that electronic evidence will continue to play an increasing role in adjudications. Lawyers also need to be cognizant of the ethical implications and data-security needs associated with e-discovery. To get a better grasp of the latest developments in e-discovery and implications associated with this rapidly growing field, try a Quimbee CLE course today!
