Building on foundational information on discovery learned from the first year Civil Procedure course, this intensive skills course introduces students to the practical elements of the e-discovery process in federal litigation, including “meet and confer,” motions to compel, and sanctions. Using the NITA method, students will have the opportunity to apply the relevant Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as they work through e-discovery obligations in a series of simulated hypotheticals,. Students will be assigned to teams as they meet and confer with opposing counsel, strategize with co-counsel, and argue a motion to compel and a motion for sanctions. This course satisfies one credit of skills.
