Chris Dale and Dominic Regan on e-Disclosure at Ely Place Chambers on 12 May

Professor Dominic Regan and I will lead a session on electronic disclosure at Ely Place Chambers, 30 Ely Place, London EC1N 6TD on Wednesday 12th May 2010. The event starts at 2.00pm and will run until 5:15pm

The Chambers notice about this event is here . The cost is £80 + VAT, a total of £94. Application should be made to the Chief Clerk, Chris Drury cdrury@elyplace.com.

This is the first of an intended series of talks around the country. Dominic Regan is Visiting Professor of Litigation at City University, and is well-known as a speaker on all aspects of litigation, and particularly on costs. He will talk about the law and I will cover the practical aspects of handling electronic disclosure in a climate which, thanks to the recent cases, brings enhanced risks to reputation as well as in relation to the actual conduct of the case on behalf of the client.

Of particular interest at the moment is the ESI Questionnaire annexed to Master Whitaker’s judgment in Goodale & Ors v The Ministry of Justice & Ors [2009] EWHC B41 (QB) (05 November 2009), one of the topics which we will focus on.

Lord Justice Jackson has highlighted the value to practitioners and judges of education in this area, including the benefit of actually seeing some of the types of applications and hearing about the services which are available to help tackle the problems.

We will be accompanied by suppliers of some of these tools and services who will between them cover the different stages of collection, processing and review.

There are practice development opportunities here as well as mitigation of risk. This is a good opportunity to get up to date in an area which is growing in importance.
