When US Chief Magistrate Judge Paul W Grimm was in London for the IQPC Information Retention and e-Disclosure Management Conference recently, he mentioned the Maryland Protocol which he and others have devised for the better handling of electronically stored information in court.
Clive Freedman of 3 Verulam Buildings, the barrister who has been responsible for the actual drafting of the proposed new e-Disclosure Practice Direction as part of Senior Master Whitaker’s drafting group, made use of part of the Maryland Protocol for part of the final version of our Practice Direction, which is to be submitted this week.
There is an opportunity to hear Judge Grimm talk about the Maryland Protocol on Tuesday 9 June at 12:00 EST, when Wave University hosts a webinar at which it will be discussed.
Registration can be made from the Wave University Webinar Schedule.
I will miss it – I am chairing the second day of the Ark Group e-Disclosure Conference that afternoon. On the strength of other webinars in which Judge Grimm has spoken, I know it will be worth listening to.
