Electronic information seems all-pervasive and unsurprisingly, is a common feature of civil litigation. This program will introduce attorneys and support personnel to the NY and federal rules that govern discovery of admissibility of electronic information as well as the imposition of sanctions for its loss. The program will explore the “basics” of those topics and inform attendees on how to begin to think “electronic.”
