New York City Bar, E-Discovery Guide for Lawyers

From the presentation of the Guide in the newsletter 44th Street Notes – May 20, 2013:

The City Bar’s E-Discovery Working Group has issued an E-Discovery Guide for Lawyers.

The Guide is intended to offer an overview of procedures and steps an attorney should take when handling electronically-stored information (ESI), including: the identification of ESI; knowing who is responsible for the ESI and how and where it was stored; and the importance of knowing how the ESI has been preserved. The Guide also offers a list of e-discovery resources attorneys may want to consult for a more detailed explanation of an attorney’s duties and responsibilities concerning e-discovery.


The Guide was prepared by the E-Discovery Working Group of the New York City Bar Association.
