Description

The world of eDiscovery is not stagnant; it's continuously evolving due to the constant influx of innovation and the changes to ethical obligations that arise as a result. To best serve their clients, legal professionals need to stay up-to-date on the latest changes to ethical rules in the world of eDiscovery.

In this session, experts from Everlaw will go over these ethical obligations, court cases where attorneys didn't meet their obligations, and the impact it had on the cases and/or attorneys directly.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek 2021 Virtual Conference on March 16th, 2021.
