Understand how to produce and preserve stored electronic information that can prove to be detrimental to your case.

This topic will focus on discovery of electronic information that is generated and stored in modern data storage systems and computers. Requests for, and disputes arising from, the preservation and production of electronic information have become common in the federal civil justice system and, increasingly, in the federal criminal justice system.
