eDiscovery has transformed litigation and required that all lawyers understand Information Technology since more than 95% of all information is now electronic. I am happy to report that staring January 9, 2012 I will begin teaching a brand new course on eDiscovery & eEvidence at the SMU Dedman School of Law in Dallas. The SMU law students will submit term papers on eDiscovery & eCommerce, and I have a number of guests who will lecture including a Texas State District Judge, former General Counsel, Chief Information Officer, and eDiscovery Professionals.
This will be my 26th year teaching as an Adjunct Professor at SMU. For the past 11 years I have taught courses on the Law of eCommerce, and while teaching that course I found that it was easier to create my own materials than rely on a casebook. I created my own materials since there are no current law casebooks on eDiscovery & eEvidence.
I had help creating the Syllabus and planning the course from Allison O. Skinner. Allison and I co-founded the American College of eNeutrals, and she has also been an Adjunct Professor of eDiscovery at the University of Alabama School of Law and the Thomas Goode Jones School of Law, Faulkner University.
I welcome your comments about my Syllabus on my eDiscovery & eEvidence website.
