The Seventh Circuit’s Electronic Discovery Committee is offering what appears to be an excellent CLE program, with one hour of Illinois credit, discussing when and how lawyers should communicate with their clients about e-discovery issues.  Click here to register for the April 28, 2010 noon CT webinar.  Here is the Committee’s description of the program:

“You and Your Clients: Communicating About E-Discovery, How to Talk to Your Clients about E-Discovery and the Application of the Seventh Circuit E-Discovery Principles” should not be missed. It will provide an in-depth discussion regarding the following topics:

  • How do you help your client assess where discoverable ESI might be stored;
  • What steps should be taken to preserve relevant ESI;          
  • When (and if) backup tapes should be considered an ESI source that needs to be preserved/disclosed/produced;
  • How vendors can be used effectively in the collection/processing/production of ESI;
  • Practical approaches for the production of ESI; and
  • When to use and how to select an electronic discovery liaison.
