    Every Florida lawyer handling matters governed by the Rules of Civil Procedure must understand and be able to apply the new e-discovery rules.

     

    E-discovery Education

    The Florida Supreme Court has also approved procedural rule amendments governing the discovery and production of electronically stored information in civil cases. Every Florida lawyer handling matters governed by the Rules of Civil Procedure must understand and be able to apply the new e-discovery rules.  The Bar recorded a three-hour CLE education program concerning the newly adopted e-discovery rules. This course is taught by three practicing attorneys who helped draft the rules and a former Florida circuit judge, three of whom are also e-discovery educators. The presenters thoroughly cover the new electronic discovery rules and provide guidance on how to utilize the rules to meet professional obligations and to diligently advocate for clients regardless of practice area.

    The course covers:

    * What Florida’s new electronic discovery rules are, why each rule was adopted, and how the rules fit in the framework of existing law and civil procedure rules.

    * How and why electronically stored information changed the way information exchanges must be handled in discovery and litigation.

    * How electronically stored information changed the relationship between lawyers and the courts and between opposing counsel.

    * What old habits lawyers must modify and change.

    * Basic strategies and practices lawyers can adopt to keep them from running afoul of the new rules.

    * How to make sure lawyers know enough about e-discovery to meet their professional responsibilities and be zealous advocates for their client.
