In a magazine piece titled “Let’s Teach our Students Legal Technology… But What Should We Include” 23 AALLSpectrum 23 (September/October 2018), co-author Professor Randy Diamond emphasizes electronic discovery challenges and competencies.
“Electronically stored information (ESI), already ubiquitous in emails, texts, productivity software, databases, social media, video, phone records, digital photos and GPS, is growing exponentially with the connection of “everything” to the Internet (IoT, or the Internet of Things). As the scope of discoverable ESI expands, the competency bar rises.” Professor Diamond’s contribution to the piece also highlights the growing importance and legal uncertainties surrounding artificial intelligence.
A recent whitepaper from Canon Business Process Services on BYOD (“bring your own device”) Policies and Employee Rights quotes Professor Diamond extensively on electronic discovery issues in a mobile business world.
Diamond teaches Advanced Legal Research and Electronic Discovery at the law school where he serves as director of Library and Technology Resources.
