eDiscovery Before and After COVID-19: What to Expect: eDiscovery Trends on Digital Detectives

Last week, I sat down for an interview with Sharon Nelson and John Simek on their excellent Digital Detectives podcast series and we discussed a variety of topics related to eDiscovery trends – before COVID-19 and since the pandemic began.  Here’s where you can find it!

Sharon (who also authors the excellent Ride the Lightning blog), John and I discussed trends related to the state of lawyer competence in eDiscovery today, the availability of eDiscovery educational resources today, recent eDiscovery trends (before the pandemic), including case law trends, how the pandemic could impact the legal profession and the eDiscovery industry, what eDiscovery providers need to do to emerge from the pandemic successfully, recommendations for legal professionals who’ve lost their jobs during the pandemic, whether there may be any good news that comes out of the pandemic (believe it or not, I think there is) and other thoughts and recommendations as well.

As always, I had a great time “talking shop” with Sharon and John!  You can check out our 24 minute interview here.  And, believe it or not, this is my third time on the show – previous interviews were in January 2019 and November 2016.  Can’t wait to do it again!


So, what do you think?  What do you think the impact of the pandemic will be on the legal profession and eDiscovery?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
