Here’s one quick thing I have for you about electronic discovery this week.
My friend Michael Arkfeld recently sent me a copy of his book Electronic Discovery and Evidence. I ended up reading it from cover to cover – a rare experience for me with legal tratises.
Here’s my conclusion after finishing the book: If you are in any way involved in electronic discovery, just go ahead and get a copy for e-discovery bookshelf. Even better, don’t keep it on the shelf. Read the book.
If you you take the time to read this book, you’ll jump to the head of the class among lawyers (and non-lawyers) living in the electronic discovery world. It’s practical, it’s easy to understand and it’s reasonably compendious.
Don’t think that you can sit down and read that many pages in ine setting – that’s what the chapters and subchapters are for. Make a plan and work your way through this book. That will give you the foundation to make e-discovery a lot more interesting for you.
I always learn a lot from Michael. This book is no exception for me, but it is also an exceptional resource. Put it on your summer reading list. If you are a client, you might buy a copy for your favorite litigator – it might help you sleep a little better at night (especially if you have one of those lawyers who still doesn’t use email).
