Unless Congress intercedes, proposed changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) will become effective on December 1. Will you be ready? Join attorneys from Seyfarth’s eDiscovery & Information Governance Practice for a one-hour webinar analyzing the impending amendments.
 
This program will examine the practical implications of the amendments, a number of which are significant and may require changes in our standard litigation and eDiscovery practices. Chief among these are the revisions to Rule 34, which is set to require increased specificity for objections and a statement describing any documents withheld from production. Other big ticket changes include those to Rule 26, affecting the scope of what is discoverable, and Rule 37(e), which completely replaces the current ineffectual safe harbor provision for loss of electronically stored information with a uniform standard for preservation failures.
 
Attorneys in Seyfarth's eDiscovery & Information Governance Practice will:
  • Discuss recent court opinions and judicial standing orders that mirror many of the changes found within these amendments in advance of their implementation
  • Include a brief analysis of the latest measures of courts and state bar associations to encourage education in eDiscovery
  • Highlight the need for eDiscovery competency for all litigators
