Whether E-discovery day is a happy holiday or not depends on your point of view. A recent survey of twenty two jurists released by Exterro stated that none of them “completely agreed” with the statement that “the typical attorneys appearing before them possess the subject matter knowledge required to effectively counsel clients on e-discovery matters”. Just for the record, we have not found this to be true.
Nonetheless, I suspect this was not a positive finding for the attorneys. The University of California at Berkeley estimates that 93 percent of all information is solely computer data. So, much information relevant to cases is stored electronically.
Enter E-Discovery Day. Launched as “an industry wide initiative to celebrate e-discovery’s vital and growing role in the legal process”, E-Discovery Day objectives also include promoting awareness of e-discovery case law.
You can kick off this holiday month with e-discovery themed items such as e-cards, badges and desktop wallpaper.
