Course Description

Electronic discovery plays an ever expanding role in litigation, from simple cases to the complex. As eDiscovery’s ubiquity grows along with the volume of electronically stored information (ESI) and major disruptive AI technologies built upon Large Language Models (LLMs), jurisdictions and courts require counsel to either be technically competent, or to be advised by an expert. This seminar will cover all aspects of the eDiscovery workflow, including ESI identification and collection, search processes, and form of production, and provide background instruction around Litigation AI platforms and technologies. The class will explore technical considerations and strategies to navigate ESI identification, preservation, and collection obligations, as well as the emerging AI advanced impacting the practice of law. We will discuss ESI search processes and simulate adversarial conferences to create ESI protocols. Using those protocols, the class will then create search workflows in eDiscovery tools using advanced analytics and technology-assisted review (TAR).
