One of the most important questions in e-discovery today is how to properly and comprehensively collect web content and social media evidence. Like e-mail, social media is one of the richest sources of relevant information about any litigation matter but many lawyers don’t understand how to properly collect it. We resort to old-school tools like the “Print Screen” button, or “Print to PDF,” but those tools are inadequate at collecting all the metadata and source information baked into the web.
There aren’t many tools on the market today that can thoroughly collect web content, which is why I’m happy to team up with Page Vault for a FREE webinar called “Collecting Web Content: Modern Capture Practices for Admissible Evidence” next Tuesday, July 18, 2017. I’m co-presenting with Patrick Schweihs of Page Vault and we’ll be covering the information you need to know about collecting web content and social media as evidence.
As a nifty bonus, every attendee will receive a free copy of the recent Page Vault report “e-Discovery Trends 2017: Web Content Collection.”
Brett Burney will be participating in a webcast sponsored by Exterro entitled “Advances in E-Discovery Project Management” on Tuesday, March 19 at 1:00pm EST / 10:00am PST.
Details are posted on the E-Discovery Beat Blog from Exterro and you can also click the registration link.
I was honored to be invited to speak at LegalTech West Coast last month (May 17 & 18), but I didn’t get a chance to post on my experiences.
Fortunately, my friend Perry Segal was there and did a fantastic job of covering the show on Day 1 and Day 2.
I had not met Perry before the show, but he had graciously filled in for me last year when I had to miss a speaking engagement in the Los Angeles area. Since Perry lives close to the area, I reached out to him at the last minute and he was able to fill in. So I was elated to meet him in person and my only regret is that we didn’t have time to sit and talk (you’ll see from his Day 2 post that he was quite busy).
I had a great time at LegalTech West Coast. It’s a much smaller show than it’s New York sibling, but it’s always great to catch up with friends and network with folks in the industry.
Tom Allman will be giving his fourth annual Fios webcast on the state of the states’ adoption of e-discovery rules on Thursday, December 9, 2010.
I regard Tom as one of the most informed folks on state e-discovery rules, and regularly provides updates on the topic such as this one from September 9, 2010. I depended heavily on Tom’s research when I wrote my article “Mining E-Discovery Stateside” for Law.com.
As significant as the amendments were to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, I believe it’s even more important at the state level, although many folks overlook them. In fact, I’ve had litigators tell me they don’t have to worry about that “e-discovery stuff” because their case isn’t in federal court, even thought they’re sitting in a state that has adopted the FRCP amendments almost word-for-word.
The two best, updated resources I usually point folks to for state e-discovery rules is:
I highly recommend registering for Tom’s Fios webinar on December 9, 2010, and make it a point to learn more about how e-discovery rules are being adopted by the states.
