The 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2015. These amendments not only change the scope of discovery in civil cases, but they also have an impact on preservation efforts, the availability of sanctions, and the ways in which parties respond to discovery requests.
By understanding the implication of the 2015 Amendments, both practitioners and companies will be better prepared to address the challenges and risks of litigation and to reduce the overall discovery costs. In addition, by understanding how these amendments will be applied, particularly in the eDiscovery process, attorneys will comply with their obligation to stay educated as to the latest requirements and developments.
• An understanding of the major changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure contained in the 2015 Amendments
• A practical understanding of how those changes were developed
• A practical understanding of what those changes will mean for civil litigation going forward
Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Litigators and in-house counsel will benefit from attending, as the 2015 Amendments will have a profound effect on the scope of discovery and the role of proportionality both in how a party preserves documents and in the course of the litigation.
