An Overview of eDiscovery Development and Application in Different Jurisdictions and Nigeria. See Chapter 21 of the book for further reading

Modern business practices, driven by advances in technology, data analytics and the growing complexity of local, regional and global legal and regulatory frameworks are confronted with the global complexity of litigation, investigations, regulation, arbitration and compliance. In order to navigate these challenges successfully, corporations require the capacity to manage the mechanics of a dispute, such as electronic discovery, in the context of the various venues and jurisdictions in which that dispute occurs. “Global companies often have operational nuclei in various countries in order to leverage the local economies. Although the physical operations may be spread broadly in a geographical sense, some multinational corporations centralize their technology operations in series of data centres that may not be optimized for the nuanced and complex issues of cross-border e-discovery.

In this swiftly changing global environment, the type of legal system employed in a particular country impacts how eDiscovery is likely to be addressed. Litigation teams may face new challenges when an eDiscovery project crosses borders – from multilingual data and unique cultural norms to unfamiliar laws, regulations and data privacy practices. It becomes imperative that legal practitioners should develop an iron-clad international legal skill-set with greater understanding of eDiscovery practice in different jurisdictions. That is our focus in this weekly module.
