The Canadian branch of nonprofit research and educational institute The Sedona Conference released a new version of its Principles Addressing Electronic Discovery this week. The Sedona Canada Principles has served Canadian legal practitioners since 2008 and was last updated in 2015.

Legaltech News spoke with Kathryn Manning about the changes, specifically what they mean for e-discovery, why they were needed, and how societal changes may impact e-discovery best practices. Manning is the chair of The Sedona Conference, Canada and served on the editorial board of the latest updates. She is also a founding partner of Toronto-based commercial litigation boutique, DMG Advocates.
