Electronic Discovery Reference Model, EDRM

This course presents each stage of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) from Information Governance to Production of Documents and provides opportunities to apply these stages to well-defined case scenarios. In addition, this course emphasises the importance of records preservation and the necessary technical tools for relevance-based document review in preparation for a Meet and Confer with opposing counsel and records requests. Selecting an eDiscovery vendor and calculating project costs associated with all aspects of collection, processing, and production will be the final components of eDiscovery covered by this course.

Course Outline

The Electronic Discovery Reference Model consists of nine steps for electronically stored information (ESI) management.

Information management: Implement data governance processes that alleviate risk and expenses in the event of an electronic discovery request.

Identification: Locate sources of information to determine exactly what the data is, and how it needs to be managed.
Preservation: Ensure potentially e-discovery-relevant ESI is properly stored using measures such as retention and deletion schedules.
Collection: Gather information for e-discovery use.
Processing: Reduce the volume the relevant ESI and convert it for review and analysis.
Review: Determine the data’s e-discovery relevance.
Analysis: Evaluate the ESI for content and context, including key patterns and topics.
Production: Deliver the ESI to relevant parties
Presentation: Display data findings at depositions, hearings, trials, etc., to elicit further information, validate existing facts or positions or persuade a jury.

Standards: 

    • EDRM Identification Standards
  • EDRM Collection Standards
  • EDRM Processing Standards Guide, Version 1
  • EDRM Production Standards, Version 2

Discussion Topics:

  • eDiscovery Vs eDisclosure
  • Benefits eDiscovery software – Leading software providers
  • Where eDiscovery fits into the legal process
  • What the Legal team need to do at each stage
  • Current Hot Topics
