A Student Electronic-Discovery Primer supplements the traditional civil procedure textbook. The Primer is specifically designed as a practical and accessible guide for the first-year law student. Traditional civil procedure textbooks have given short shrift to what has emerged as a foundation of modern civil litigation—electronic discovery. This concise text introduces students to the new and often troubling themes of electronic discovery: preservation, search, metadata, and forms of production, touching upon the major issues that confront the use of digital data in litigation. It also includes sample electronic discovery practice forms and outlines the key 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure relating to electronic discovery. This Primer is an excellent electronic discovery introduction for students and a handy guide for civil procedure professors.
