The impact of e-discovery is profound
Digital evidence has changed litigation forever. Not only are there vastly more documents than ever before – but documents in digital form require lawyers to change the way they prepare for trial. It has also had a significant impact on how some organizations – particularly those with recurring lawsuits – organize their information resources. The impact of digital evidence goes far beyond civil litigation too – it is an important factor in criminal law, investigations, arbitrations, public inquiries, access to information requests, and any proceeding where digital evidence is needed.
