Electronic discovery affects everyone, from new litigators to the most seasoned trial lawyers. The ability to navigate the waters of this continually-evolving field can mean the difference between efficiently obtaining the key documents needed to win your case and missing out on critical evidence that you never even knew existed. This webinar will provide a "nuts and bolts" overview of e-discovery for attorneys of all experience levels. Our panelists will cover a variety of topics, including e-discovery in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, what to look for in local rules and standing orders, drafting discovery requests, negotiating search terms, data preservation, and more!

Injunctive relief is the backbone of civil rights litigation. Injunctions ensure that illegal practices - such as systemic prisoner abuse and discrimination against persons with disabilities - are brought to an end. This webinar will cover practical tips for pleading and certifying class actions seeking injunctive relief, including selecting appropriate class representatives, dealing with standing issues, crafting the class definition, defining the requested injunction, deciding whether to seek preliminary relief, and preparing for discovery and class certification. Our experienced panelists will also discuss important developments in injunctive relief following the Supreme Court's decision in Wal-Mart v. Dukes.

Settling a class action can be tricky business. It may take weeks, or even months, to reach agreement on the monetary figures, programmatic terms, and countless other provisions that go into even the most straightforward class action settlement. Ethical issues add yet another layer of complexity. Being prepared to address potential ethical pitfalls is critical to achieving a settlement that is fair to class members and will withstand scrutiny by the reviewing court. This webinar will discuss common ethical issues in class action settlements, such as class representative enhancement payments, releases, confidentiality, cy pres awards, reverse auctions, side deals, "clear sailing" agreements, and attorneys' fees.
