From the Publisher

Law Partner Publishing announces the release of the 2006-2007 edition of its acclaimed Electronic Discovery and Evidence treatise by the well-known author, speaker and attorney, Michael R. Arkfeld.

Treatise Overview

A detailed legal treatise for lawyers and other legal professionals, Electronic Discovery and Evidence explores nearly every legal dilemma that may confront the discovery and admissibility of electronic evidence. It covers electronic storage devices and locations, data types, as well as legal issues regarding preservation and discovery with a special focus on admissibility of electronic evidence. All this is accomplished with clear explanations of technology and legal concepts; authoritative discussion of court rules and case law; evidentiary analysis and forms, checklists and practical pointers.

Electronic Discovery and Evidence is organized into eight chapters to guide you through the process of discovering and admitting electronic evidence. Chapter 1, Electronic Information in Litigation, sets the stage for understanding the pervasive change from paper to electronic evidence. It discusses the unique characteristics of electronic data and why you have to discover and also produce this evidence. In Chapter 2, Creation and Storage of Electronic Information, basic information is provided as to how electronic information is created, stored and retrieved. Chapter 3, Structure and Types of Electronic Information, discusses the underlying computer setup, business software applications and how electronic material is organized. It explores special issues unique to electronic information and provides a detailed analysis of the different software types, and citations to legal authorities when applicable. Chapter 4, Computer Forensics, Experts and Service Bureaus, explores the role of forensic specialists to assist you in the collection and processing of electronic information. Chapter 5, Collecting, Processing and Searching Electronic Information, focuses on the actual collection and processing of electronic information. In Chapter 6, Discovery and Production Process, the discovery and production steps are discussed. The focus here is on the overall plan, scope of request, preservation request, production format and other practical issues involved in discovering and producing data. Chapter 7, Court Procedural Rules and Case Law, focuses on the relevant Federal Rules of Procedure and case law in production and disclosure of electronic information. It covers a broad area including Rule 16 pretrial conference, Rule 26 initial disclosures, experts' reports, relevancy, overbroad claims, cost allocation issues, work product, attorney-client waiver issues and protective orders and so forth. Chapter 8, Admissibility of Electronic Evidence, examines the evidentiary considerations for the admission of electronic evidence. It discusses the general concepts of preliminary questions, judicial notice, relevancy, expert witness testimony, hearsay, authentication and the Best Evidence rule.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Craig Ball on November 28, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Michael Arkfeld's treatise on e-discovery is peerless among print publications. No other volume offers the encyclopaedic treatment of the topic and its depth and breadth of scholarship. Michael Arkfeld lucidly weaves practical knowledge gleaned from years at the bar with a professorial commitment to case law and best practices. Though books on fast-moving topics are obsolete almost from the moment of publication, the looseleaf format and ancillary online resources of the Arkfeld work insure that it can continue to deliver the best features of both media.

Michael Arkfeld's book sets the standard by which all its successors are judged, and it has yet to be supplanted as the seminal work in the field. If you buy one book on electronic discovery, this is the one to buy.
