New for 2016
The EDI Federal Judges' Guide to Discovery
Analysis Of Chapters 5 & 6
Wednesday | July 13, 2016 | 12:00 PM EDT
For 2016, The Electronic Discovery Institute (EDI) has launched a new discovery manual – The Federal Judges’ Guide to Discovery – that provides guidance to practitioners regarding the themes of the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). Specifically, EDI anticipates the need for case management guidance and interpretive support for judges, lawyers and practitioners.
The learning goal of this course is for participants to take-away key ideas to deploy proportionality, reasonableness and remedies in a strategy that supports the goals behind FRCP 1, that “they should be construed, administered, and employed by the court and the parties to secure the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action and proceeding.”
This course will provide an author-guided overview and analysis of chapters five and six of EDI’s Federal Judges’ Guide to Discovery – “The Common Law Duty to Preserve and the Impact of Rule 37(e)” and “The Roles of Rules 26(f) and 16(b) in Active Judicial Management of Discovery Challenges.”
