E-Discovery: How to Avoid Problems You Didn’t Know You Had (CD)


Self-study hours are logged by the listener and the one page list is kept in an MCLE compliance folder. The log requires a listing of each program title, the program's approved MCLE provider name, program length, and whether or not that program contains mandatory subfield credit (legal ethics, elimination of bias, or prevention of substance abuse.)

Participatory hours require a proctor (any adult who is not simultaneously using the same program for participatory credit) to complete and sign documents accompanying each participatory program. Those completed and signed documents are subsequently returned to Versatape and individual certificates of compliance are prepared and returned to the listener to be filed in a MCLE compliance folder. Versatape will also keep a copy of the certificates of compliance on file. If audited the State Bar will be looking for a copy of those completed certificates of compliance and a copy of the self -study hours log.

Note: Please note MCLE audio program hours listened to in excess of 25 hours in a 3-year compliance period cannot be carried over into the next 3-year cycle.

How They Work

In this April 11, 2017 program our speaker and program materials discuss the following:

In June 2009 the Electronic Discovery Act was enacted. As a result, the California Code of Civil Procedure added new statutes to provide a series of procedures for litigants to use to obtain Discovery or to object to Discovery specifically related to Electronically Stored Information (ESI). 

Our speaker’s objective is to help you become aware of the responsibilities an attorney has when he or she becomes AWARE of the existence of information or evidence, stored on an electronic device, even before litigation has been initiated. This is something that previously was not assigned to attorneys.

  • More importantly, that the burden to protect ESI has now shifted to counsel, a burden that does not exist in any other type of discovery.
  • What is Discovery?
  • Why Now?
  • Electronically Stored Information (ESI)
  • Triggering event
  • Preliminary Steps
  • Protecting and Discovering ESI relevant to the discovery process in any particular case.
  • Attorney Responsibilities that you didn’t know you have!
  • What happens if the client and/or their personnel fail to affirmatively preserve ESI?
  • How to Protect Yourself
