The eDiscovery People group was formed as an Open Group on LinkedIn in order to attract cross-discipline participation by Information Retrieval scientists and engineers, eDiscovery Attorneys, Project Managers, and Litigation Support leaders.
We share and discuss kernels of wisdom from the best and brightest in the eDiscovery field, including experienced inside counsel, outside counsel, and eDiscovery consultants and other luminaries in the field who have contributed ideas to the Advanced E-Discovery Institute at Georgetown Law Center, The Sedona Conference, and the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM).
Find insights and interesting ideas in the Discussions area of the eDiscovery People – a leading group on LinkedIn for conversations about process improvements and technology innovations for electronic discovery.
- + International eDiscovery
- + eDiscovery Project Management
- + Concepts of Defensibility, Proportionality, Reasonableness
- + Process Improvement
- + Information Retrieval Technologies and Methods
- + Data Mining Techniques
- + Relevance Determinations Assisted by Machine Learning
- + Social Networking Web Site Content and Communications
- + ESI Production Standards
Upcoming open discussions will focus on the efficacy of search terms for relevance assessment; defensible targeted self-collections of ESI in civil litigation; how best to “redact” and produce relevant portions of audio and video documents; and ways to preserve metadata for social media found in the cloud.
Participation in conversations about technical and substantive aspects of eDiscovery is encouraged for qualified persons with relevant expertise and unique perspectives. While it is possible for a LinkedIn member of any level to request to join eDiscovery People, membership is not automatic. Members of eDiscovery People can be invited by other members with domain knowledge on a particular topic of interest.
The primary objective of eDiscovery People is to enable thoughtful dialogue and commentary about current issues in electronic discovery. Discussions are guided by moderators well-versed in information management and information retrieval. Members in the eDiscovery Group include a global community of Information Retrieval scientists and engineers, eDiscovery Attorneys, Project Managers, and Litigation Support leaders.
In addition to Discussions, there are promotions and other opportunities for professional development, including a current list of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses specific to eDiscovery-related topics. The programs highlighted here cover the gamut of discovery strategies and obligations in light of today’s Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). For example, you can learn about data mapping techniques, efficacy of search terms for relevance identification, approaches to defensible targeted collections, methods for handling audio and video documents, social media, cloud computing, metadata, forensics, privacy, protective orders, and data security.
Learn about key elements of business information environments, including storage devices, desktop machines, portable devices, mail and file servers, networking, file shares, collaboration tools, and backup systems. As well, databases ─ as common sources of discoverable ESI ─ are of keen interest for essential document requests.
Of great interest is the Promotions area of eDiscovery People where timely content is showcased for wider discussion. Content is managed and moderated by peers to keep it relevant and succinct.
Additionally, of particular interest to eDiscovery lawyers and IT professionals, there is a Jobs section in the eDiscovery People group area on LinkedIn where members can share opportunities of interest with present and future colleagues. While these listings are available to all LinkedIn members, the culled set available here is a high value compilation, reserved for eDiscovery People group members.
