International E-Discovery Book

05 Sep 2018

Legalink's first co-publication with Globe Law and Business, International E-Discovery "brings together contributions from leading experts in technology and experienced legal practitioners. Some of its chapters examine e-discovery through the lens of technology. Others consider pragmatic issues such as data storage and outsourcing. The book also surveys the practice of e-discovery in a number of common law and civil law systems including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States", said  The Rt Dame Elizabeth Gloster, Chairman of the Disclosure Working Group responsible for the drafting of the new Disclosure Pilot Scheme.

 The Rt Dame Elizabeth Gloster adds "The proliferation of electronically stored information in modern times poses numerous challenges for the conduct of civil litigation and arbitration. Unsurprisingly, most leading centres of international dispute resolution have recently turned their attention to these issues. In England and Wales, for example, the Disclosure Working Group (which I chaired) found that many of the existing rules were framed with paper disclosure in mind and were therefore unsuitable for dealing with electronic data. As a result, the Working Group recommended a suite of innovative proposals including a Disclosure Review Document to replace the existing electronic disclosure questionnaire. This will provide a framework for meaningful discussions between the parties about the processing and review of e-disclosure and the use of technology, where possible. Our proposals are due to be piloted from January 2019 in the Business and Property Courts."
