The new issue of LawPro magazine has hit the Internet and our friends from north of the border have hit another home run. The theme of this issue is electronic discovery and every lawyer should go download it now. As I keep telling groups of lawyers, general familarity with electronic discovery will be needed in almost every aspect of the practice of law from corporate governance to family law to litigation. From Dan Pinnington’s article on "Why Electronic Documents are Different" to Susan Wortzman’s article on "Spoliation, Preservation and other ‘Gotchas" to the downloadable sample electronic discovery request letter, you’ll be glad you took the time to download this entire publication. True, it is geared for Canadians, but you may have noted we have few precedents of any kind at the moment.

OKLAHOMA LAWYERS, and those within easy travel distance, should not forget our Oklahoma Electronic Discovery Summit slated for September 22-23 at the Reed Center in Midwest City, OK. We’ve added even more value to this program with local and national vendors attending and a free ED forms CD to be provided to all attendees. For more info, go here.
