Episode Notes

One of the most challenging problems facing litigators is how to work with the massive volume of digital documents produced during discovery. In the past, each piece of paper was stamped with a “Bates” number — to help manage exhibits. But with digital files, no “pages” and no “Bates” number! Now files may be anything from Excel spread sheets to Word files, to e-mail, to iPod downloads! What to do? Listen as Monica Bay, editor-in-chief of Law Technology News talks with Tom O’Connor, director of the Legal Electronic Document Institute (and a long-time member of Law Technology News’ editorial advisory board) who says it’s time to rethink how we process and review files. Hear about a simple step that controls costs, improves accuracy and could dramatically change the face of e-discovery. O’Connor also discusses this month’s Louisiana Bar Solo and Small Firm Technology Conference in New Orleans — designed to help practitioners affected by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. Both O’Connor and LTN’s Monica Bay speak at the two-day event.
