In his latest blog post, ediscovery expert Craig Ball seeks input on a curriculum that would provide litigators with basic ediscovery competence.

In my comments to Craig’s post, I explain my view that most litigators don’t have the interest in information technology that, in my experience, is necessary (in addition to education) to allow them to attain basic ediscovery competence. In my view, litigators who aren’t interested in information technology should retain knowledgeable co-counsel who are. See Comment to Rule 1.1 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct.
