Welcome to the second edition of Exterro's Basics of E-Discovery guide. Like its predecessor, this guide will provide you with a wealth of useful information that you can use in your professional life whether you're an e-discovery novice or an experienced practitioner.
We've taken pains to keep what made the original Basics of E-Discovery a great resource. While informative, it's also entertaining. It uses straightforward language wherever possible. It simplifies where appropriate, and breaks up long blocks of text into bulleted lists where possible. It incorporates fun graphics and visual elements to make it a bit more inviting.
But a lot has happened since the original guide came out, not the least of which was the issuance of the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), which include the ground rules governing e-discovery. We've updated the guide to address these changes in the law, as well as the continuing evolution in the technology of e-discovery.
In this second edition of the Basics of E-Discovery, you will get:
- Updated best practices
- Links to newer resources (as well as some classics!)
- Simple explanations of key concepts and processes
We've even included links to some video elements to the guide that you can find on the website. We hope you'll enjoy it!
