In order to easily find information as part of e-discovery databases, issues must be coded in order to be searchable in the course of litigation.
The Federation of Law Societies of Canada is proposing to amend its baseline standards of professionalism for lawyers to include technological competence, even though most law schools in Canada don’t teach how to use innovative digital tools.
When it comes to e-discovery, Ontario’s Rules of Civil Procedure make having a discovery plan mandatory. Lawyers say that what makes a good discovery plan is good communication and the sense of proportionality to the volume of documents being produced.
The advent of e-discovery means that the possibility of paperless trials has arrived, and they have been run in Ontario courts in some cases. Lawyers say that when it’s possible to run a paperless trial, they can be a welcome change.
