Abstract

This Article begins by outlining changes in the modern digital world through an examination of essential laws of computing unfamiliar to most lawyers but crucial to an understanding of the changing landscape of technology and its projected impact on modern society. Part II then applies these principles to the practice of law in the context of electronic discovery, pointing to the challenges posed under the current Rules of Civil Procedure, an ever-increasing overabundance of discoverable data, and the inadequacy of existing technology and processes possessed by the typical lawyer to deal with these challenges. Finally, Part III of this Article will examine and advocate for the adoption of the proposed changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, as well as adoption of similar provisions in Tennessee, and ultimately offer suggestions to reform eDiscovery through process improvement, collaboration, and technology implementation.
