A Handy Electronic Discovery Slide Chart

There has certainly been a flurry of frantic press releases and stories about electronic discovery since the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure took effect on December 1. Probably a few too many of them have a certain breathless, sky-is-falling tone to them that I don’t think is very helpful.
As I say in my electronic discovery presentations, the concepts in the new rules are simple, but the details in actual practice can get complicated. However, you do need to understand the basics to move forward.
Let me recommend a free little tool that I’ve found quite helpful in learning about the new amendments.
It’s called the Stratify Quick Guide to the Revised FRCP from one of the leading e-discovery vendors, Stratify. It’s a simple, handy slide chart that offers a summary of the main rule changes (five of them) on one side, and practical tips on how to prepare on the other side. Quite useful.
David Bayer of Stratify tells me that the Quick Guide has proven to be very popular and, just in time for the holidays, Stratify has ordered up a second printing of the guide. Request your copy here.
Once you get a handle on the basics, you’ll be ready to calmly dive deeper into the topic and I suggesting putting aside the frantic press releases and starting with the article Tom Mighell and I wrote called “EDD-ucating Yourself About Electronic Discovery.”
