E-discovery is a legal process that depends on technology.

E-discovery is indisputably a legal process. But it cannot be done without knowledge of information technology (and I don’t mean computer literacy – that’s a different skill set.) Lawyers must understand not only the law and practice of e-discovery (which can be found in the rules, case law, practice directions, guidelines, textbooks and articles) but also the way in which digital information is created, managed, stored, shared, and then captured, processed, structured, reviewed and produced.
