eDiscovery Guide

Welcome to FindLaw's Guide to Electronic Discovery. Based on the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), this tool will help you develop your knowledge of e-discovery practices and determine the best strategies for success with complex e-discovery issues. Launched in May 2005, the EDRM Project was created to address the lack of standards and guidelines in the electronic discovery market -- a problem identified in the 2003 and 2004 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery surveys as a major concern for vendors and consumers alike. The completed reference model provides a common, flexible and extensible framework for the development, selection, evaluation and use of electronic discovery products and services.
