I want to pass along the following information from electronic discovery expert George Socha about an important electronic discovery survey he is doing. Among other things, George co-authors with me “The Electronic Discoverers,” a new monthly column on electronic discovery at DiscoveryResources.org.
Here’s the info I want to share:
George is conducting the 2004 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery Survey and encourages you to participate in the online portion of that survey.
“After nearly two months of gathering information, we are drawing near to the of this phase of the survey. We have been pleased with the results but we always are looking for more input and hope that you will take the time to complete the on-line survey.
You can log on to the survey by going to http://www.vencio.com/survey04. Depending on your responses, you can expect the on-line survey to take 15 to 30 minutes. Please note, however, that you can complete the survey over multiple sessions and revise your answers before they are final. Whether you complete the survey in one session or over multiple sessions, once you start the survey you will have until the latter part of May to complete it.
Also, please note that you are not required to answer all the questions. If there are questions you would rather not answer, skip them and move on.
Confidentiality of the information you provide is important to us. Please know that we will not disclose personal information about you to any third party without your consent or unless we are required to do so by law.
For those of you who choose to participate in the on-line survey, we thank you. As a token of our appreciation for taking the time to complete the survey we will send you a complementary abridged version of the report made available to subscribers. To see last year’s publicly released report, go to http://www.sochaconsulting.com/Publications/DDEE%2005.03.pdf.

This survey should produce some very useful information for lawyers, the court system and, perhaps nost important, clients of lawyers.
