Electronic documents are now a central part of the American discovery process. In recent years, courts have imposed new and sweeping requirements upon corporations both in terms of how they collect data and what must be produced. They are also setting new standards for managing and searching electronic files.

This program provides an introduction to the rules governing electronic discovery as well as a look at recent decisions by the court that are of special interest to Japanese corporate executives. We will also take a practical look at collecting data in Japan for US litigation and the requirements facing U.S. subsidiaries of Japanese corporations.

  • Introduction to E-Discovery: What Japanese corporate executives need to know about the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
  • New Rules Governing E-Discovery: Learn how to meet the new requirements being imposed by the Federal Courts and how to avoid high-dollar sanctions.
  • Collecting data in Japan*: A practical look at what Japanese corporations and their U.S. subsidiaries need to know before they start collecting data.
  • The Evolution of Search: Search is the key to dealing with the explosion of content that has hit the e-discovery industry. We will look at the evolution of search and the law of search.
  • TAR 2.0: Technology Assisted Review is a potential game changer for electronic discovery. We will look at the technology and the case law.
  • Using a Leading E-Discovery Repository: A look at Catalyst Insight, one of the most powerful e-discovery platforms on the market today.

Note: The section on collecting data in Japan will be given by David Sannar, President of Catalyst Japan

About CLE Credit

Please bring your state attorney ID number so that you can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
