Electronic discovery represents a new paradigm for litigators. Digital information, from email and attachments, to documents created on word processors, to instant messaging communications and "Twitters", is what comprises discovery today. Preserving the chain of custody from collection of this digital evidence to presentation in court is imperative.
Electronic courtrooms are becoming more common to allow presentation of evidence in electronic format and this will continue, not only for large, document heavy cases, but for all litigation matters in the future. Australian courts continue to develop practical standards to ensure consistency of data and documents during discovery and at trial.
This book is a must-read for all litigators, students and academics, especially those who have not dealt with electronic documents during discovery.
· Practical overview and examples of computer forensics, electronic discovery and electronic courtrooms within Australia
