Do your existing practices need to be revamped? Crafting a successful legal hold entails more than hitting "send" on a "don't delete" message. You have to grasp the issues, sources, systems, forms and fragility of electronically-stored information, and it helps to know human nature. Join E-discovery expert, Craig Ball, and learn the essential elements of preservation for litigation and practical tips for scoping, communicating and defending a cost-effective legal hold. 




  • Examine the preferred practices in creating a defensible legal hold  
  • Determine the U.S. civil procedure and common law requirements of the preservation of ESI 
  • Identify the action to take when the duty to preserve attaches  
  • Explain how to ensure safe outcomes that flow from less-burdensome and -costly preservation strategies
