The discoverability of all of that information raises major ethical issues in civil litigation. This program will analyze in detail how attorney ethics rules apply to the discovery and production of electronic evidence, with an emphasis on preserving the attorney-client privilege, confidentiality issues, and liability in the event of inadvertent production.
