Welcome to Lawshelf’s video-course on E-discovery. This course offers a cutting-edge look into the legal and technological factors that impact the electronic discovery process in civil litigation. This is an intermediate-level course and we recommend that you first watch our video-course on Discovery in Civil Litigation. However, we have prepared the course so that it should be accessi ble even to people with little understanding of the technologies involved.

The course starts with an introduction to the nature of e-discovery and the phenomenon of electronically stored information (which almost all information today is). We will look at how the rules of discovery are applied to ESI.
