Why You Should Attend
In the modern commercial world, much of business is conducted in the electronic environment: e-mails, instant messaging, documents in electronic formats, internet banking and a whole host of other online services. The result of this is an explosion in the volume of documents. When things go wrong and the dispute reaches the courts, this large volume of electronic documents together with physical documents will have to be managed throughout the litigation process, including during a trial.
- How should one collect and preserve these electronic documents?
- How best can they be discovered in a court case?
- What tools are there to assist lawyers in presenting these documents in the course of a trial?
- How can Judges leverage on technology to manage trials?
