OREGON PARALEGAL ASSOCIATION
Protecting Work Product in the Age of eDiscovery
The complexities associated with electronic discovery have caused some courts to revisit the traditional notions underlying the application of the work product doctrine in discovery. With work product rules evolving to keep pace with technological changes, it is essential that lawyers and litigation support professionals understand the current treatment of that doctrine in connection with the discovery process. This program will cover these issues and provide attendees with a better understanding of the following topics:
• The interplay between the work product doctrine and the duty to preserve electronically stored information
• The application of the work product doctrine to search methodologies, including keyword searches and predictive coding workflows
• The extent to which the work product doctrine protects counsel’s review and analysis of discoverable information
