Federal Rule of Evidence 502 promised to effectively limit the skyrocketing costs of discovery. But more than a year after its enactment, many believe that the rule has done little to reduce parties' burdens and risks.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  1. What FRE 502 is and what it means to both outside counsel and corporations
  2. Whether FRE 502 has had any impact on the traditional page-by-page review by outside counsel, particularly in light of the current economic and legal climate
  3. How parties and their counsel should navigate the waters of FRE 502 by implementing "reasonable" review methodologies and what can be done outside of the rule to accomplish the drafters' original intent
