E-Discovery: Golden Opportunity for New Attorneys

We'll be back with another guest post from Sean Burke later this week (for his first guest entry, see 401(k) and IRA Protection from Judgment Creditors). For now, I wanted to pass along my latest article: E-Discovery: Golden Opportunity for New Attorneys. It appears in the new issue of At Issue, the Pennsylvania Bar Association Young Lawyers Division's quarterly publication.

The article contains substantive content on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, emerging case law in the field, and new technologies (from social networking to smart phones). All of this is wrapped in a layer of advocacy on behalf of the proposition that new attorneys are positioned to make an immediate impact on litigation teams in the field of electronic discovery.

  1. Phil,

    I think I recall discussing the topic of E-Discovery with you last summer. I had not been to your blog in a while and was pleasantly surprised to see the article. I will make it a point to check back more often.

    I also wanted to mention I will be taking the E-Discovery Simulation Clinic at Duquesne next spring. It should be an interesting skills course, I believe it was instituted about two years ago. Obviously I found the article to be of high interest. Keep them coming.
