Understanding metadata and its role in ediscovery is key for attorneys to provide competent representation under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Yet for many attorneys, metadata remains a mystery. Without a basic understanding of what metadata is, where it comes from, and how to leverage it during document review, it can be challenging to conduct effective early case assessment or craft an effective review strategy. This has far-reaching implications later in the process of litigation or investigations in terms of meeting case deadlines while controlling costs, and ultimately delivering results that satisfy clients. 

Join this webcast to improve your understanding and create a working knowledge of what ingestion is. Plus, you will learn:

  • The basics of data collection, metadata, and how metadata functions in eDiscovery.
  • Why data ingestion is important to the practice of law.
  • How to improve your understanding of eDiscovery and why it’s essential in providing competent representation.
