On the last day of law school this Fall I attempted to summarize what we had been studying all semester. This blog shares another video excerpt of that class. A key component of our studies was the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (their new version is shown above). Professor Hamilton and I use information from both The Sedona Conference and the EDRM as part of our instruction program. Thanks to George Socha for pointing out that EDRM.net recently posted a revised version of this graphic. It has a cleaner look than the prior version and different colors. I like it.
As you will see I use a slightly modified version of the EDRM chart in my law school lecture. This video excerpt of the class is my longest yet, at just over 15 minutes, and assumes some prior knowledge of the EDRM. The video also includes my latest high definition graphic innovations to ramp up the multimedia approach. It is not yet 3-D, like the great movie, Avatar, I saw recently, but it is my best effort yet.
The video sets forth my peculiar slant and twist to things, which diverges somewhat from the agreed-upon explanations found on the EDRM.net website. It also includes a call for companies everywhere to “Googleize” their IT departments as a key component of Information Management. This first step of the EDRM is pre-litigation, but is key to the successful implementation of any e-discovery team.
