Statement of Purpose

The goals of the E-Discovery and Technology Law Section are (1) to educate lawyers on the role and management of electronic information in the litigation process, and (2) to provide a forum for analysis of corporate, transactional and regulatory issues related to the internet and digital technologies.

The e-discovery focus includes examination of the lawyer’s legal and ethical obligations to the client, the court and the community, to understand the role of counsel to clients regarding the management of electronic information; to promote the use of and understanding of technology in the promotion of the just speedy and inexpensive resolution of disputes and to promote open and forthright information sharing, training and development of practical tools to facilitate cooperative, collaborative and transparent discovery in the litigation process.

The technology law focus seeks to identify and address legal and business issues affected by the implementation of emerging technologies and to facilitate the creation of legal infrastructures that protect and support electronic commerce.  The Section seeks to provide practical tools and guidance both for practitioners who regularly deal with e-discovery and technology law issues and for those who encounter them only occasionally.
