The 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure

Monday, December 7, 2015 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Long-awaited changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure go into effect on December 1st.  This program will brief you on them, focusing on the reworded Rule 26 relevance standard, increased emphasis on proportionality in discovery and early case management, and substantial retooling of the sanctions provisions vis-à-vis failure to preserve electronically stored information. The impact of the federal courts’ experience with e-discovery since the last significant revision of the FRCP, in 2006, will be a recurring theme.
