Advanced Certificate in eDiscovery Law
Welcome to Advanced Certificate in eDiscovery Law
eDiscovery is a very exciting field. eDiscovery, an abbreviated term for electronic discovery, is the obligation of parties to a lawsuit to exchange documents that exist only in electronic form (known as ESI). It refers to any process in which electronic data is sought, located, secured, and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in a civil or criminal legal proceedings. Examples of electronic documents and data subject to e-discovery are e-mails, voicemails, instant messages, e-calendars, audio files, data on handheld devices, animation, metadata, graphics, photographs, spreadsheets, websites, drawings and other types of digital data.

Typical methods of discovery include document requests, written interrogatories, or depositions of an opponent’s representatives. During this investigation of the facts, a responding party must identify the potential locations of relevant information, collect that information, examine it for both responsiveness and privilege, and then finally produce it to the requesting party.

These processes involve understanding of the key legal issues involved in eDiscovery.

Our training in the main, encompasses the knowledge of the EDRM process including identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analysis, production and presentation of electronically stored information as illustrated below.

De-Cfi training Program provides lawyers and other legal professionals working for law firms, corporate legal departments, government agencies and legal staffing agencies with practical training and education on the legal requirements and best practices for managing the discovery of electronic information in litigation and investigations.

“When everyone on your eDiscovery team—including IT and technical staff—have a basic understanding of the key legal issues they can minimize the inherent risks related to the performance of their duties. Understanding these legal issues will not only improve performance but reduce risk and costs.”
