Schwartz U.S. Courthouse. The topic of the MCLE is "Fundamentals of Forensics for eDiscovery." The State Bar of California has approved this activity for MCLE credit in the amount of 1.0 hour.
The MCLE will cover the state of current forensic practice in identifying, preserving, and collecting potentially relevant data for litigation. It will also address practical considerations regarding the types of collections that can be performed, who should conduct collections and issues in authenticating collections.
Forensics and eDiscovery are not interchangeable. This MCLE will help participants distinguish between these two often confused industry terms. Speaking with Mr. Vaughn will be Kathryn (Kit) Goetz of Qualcomm and Dan Kinney of ProSearch Strategies, Inc. Sign-up for the MCLE can be found at: http://www.sandiegoesiforum.com.
