The amended Federal Rules of Civil Procedure go into effect on December 1, 2015. The new Rules stand to have a profound effect on federal practice, especially practices surrounding discovery and electronic discovery. This program will detail the changes to the Federal Rules, with special emphasis on discovery practices. The panel will discuss the potential impact of revisions to the scope and timing of discovery, and the manner of objections; the enhanced role of proportionality and cooperation; and the specifics of spoliation of electronically stored information and the associated sanctions.
