E-Discovery Consulting and Ernst & Young have joined forces to present the Managing eDiscovery in New Zealand Conference. The Conference is taking place at the Stamford Plaza in Auckland on Wednesday the 13th of February 2013.

Understanding the practical impact of the High Court Discovery Rules 12 months on

Electronic discovery in New Zealand has grown significantly over the last year and there is a clear need for an event which allows NZ legal professionals to develop their knowledge of this evolving area. To successfully conduct e-discovery under the new discovery rules it is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of the entire electronic discovery process.

The E-discovery process does present many with new challenges and requires new skills from what many have been accustomed to. Obtaining a greater awareness of the e-discovery process, will provide a significant advantage in tackling your next e-discovery exercise.

Back to basics

The Managing eDiscovery in New Zealand Conference will provide a practical insight into the entire e-discovery process, taking you back to the basics including a step by step guide to each phase of the process. The event will look to equip legal professionals with the further skills and the necessary grounding in electronic discovery.

Not only will the conference look at what the Court requires you to do, it will also provide valuable insight with expert practical experiences of the tips and pitfalls of conducting electronic discovery.
