An introduction to electronic disclosure

Dispute resolution lawyers are required to keep fully up-to-date with the disclosure requirements of the Civil Procedure Rules including in relation to electronic disclosure. Disclosure is an important aspect of any action and it is essential that solicitors put in place a system which ensures that it is carried out properly and with care.

Much of disclosure nowadays is of electronic documentation which is stored on and retrieved from electronic databases; the documentation is sifted, sorted and reviewed by solicitors on electronic review platforms in a variety of ways, including using computer assisted review techniques; and inspection of documents is given electronically.

Solicitors at all levels of qualification need to understand the rules of disclosure and how to deal with electronic documentation in the disclosure process. MBL’s upcoming half day course is designed for newcomers, starting with an overview of the disclosure process from identifying sources of documents through to review and analysis, and then to disclosure and inspection.
