I wrote recently about the series of eDiscovery webinars being put on by iCONECT, owners of the eDiscovery platform XERA, and how the enthusiasm which I expressed for the subject led to an invitation to take part in the first of them.
That is called Social Communication: Is There Anything Worth Requesting and concerns the potential eDiscovery value of new forms of social inter-action which might easily be overlooked. The “worth requesting” bit reflects the fact that the mere existence of potentially discoverable material does not make it worth extracting, processing and producing – that is determined by its relevance and by proportionality. The error lies in not identifying it as a potential source of evidence, whether on your own side or in the hands of opponents.
For reasons beyond our control, this webinar did not go out as planned last week. It has now been fixed for tomorrow, Wednesday 25 September at 1.00pm EDT / 18.00 BST. The presenters are Ian Campbell of iCONECT, Thomas Barnett of Saito Sorenson LLP – and me.
