|Writing: Electronic Discovery||2||
This two-credit-hour advanced writing course will help prepare students for the types of writing that are common to complex civil litigation, while introducing them to electronic discovery, with a focus on practice in a large law firm. Because most complex civil litigation and federal white collar investigations now involve e-discovery, understanding the financial, organizational, and ethical challenges it poses is critical to today's practitioners. Writing assignments will all surround one hypothetical federal lawsuit that raises common e-discovery issues. Students will be associates in a hypothetical law firm and will handle the e-discovery aspects of the firm's defense of the lawsuit.
