It has been almost a year since the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) eDiscovery amendments went into effect.  This past year of case law has provided insight on how courts will apply these rule amendments, which center on proportionality and spoliation sanctions.

In this program, three federal judges will have a roundtable discussion to review the major trends from 2016 eDiscovery case law and provide tips on how to meet court expectations when applying the new FRCP eDiscovery rules.

Educational Objectives:
Program participants will learn:
• Best practices from a judicial panel with deep experience around eDiscovery issues
• Analysis of noteworthy eDiscovery cases from 2016 and how to prevent similar mistakes
• Case law trends on how the new FRCP rules are being interpreted by the court
