A note about the launch of e-Lessons Learned

. When I considered the thought of whether I should blog, a friend offered a great piece of advice: “Don’t . . . unless you feel strongly about a topic and can contribute meaningfully to its discourse.”
The first half of the sage advice was easy. Over the past couple of years, I’ve devoted a significant part of my professional (and personal) life to understanding the issues and pitfalls posed by emails, word processing documents, and other electronic documents, especially in the context of lawsuits and corporate governance. I’ve written articles and lectured in front of judges, business owners, executives, in-house counsel, HR, IT, and risk managers, and other lawyers; and offered strategies to manage business and legal issues related to electronic documents and information technology.

The second half of the advice, however, gave me pause: “How do I add meaningfully to the already heavily discussed topic of e-discovery? That’s when my two young sons taught me a lesson as I tried to teach them one. They taught me that the best lessons in life are learned through experience and conversation, not lecture. By taking real-life examples of e-discovery mishaps and pitfalls culled from actual cases involving real people, and discussing what went wrong and how it could have been prevented, we offer readers concrete lessons to help them avoid the mistakes of their peers and improve their own electronic document management.

With that, I present to you e-Lessons Learned: An educational blog about e-discovery best practices for employees; brought to you by Professor Pinguelo and his students at Seton Hall University School of Law.

I designed e-Lessons learned to give readers concrete examples that (a) identify cases that expose e-discovery mishaps at the employee level (either through negligence, ethical lapses in judgment, too much reliance on outside counsel or vendors, or fraud); (b) expose specific conduct that caused a problem for the company; (c) explain how and why the conduct was improper, and (d) offer suggestions on how to learn from these mistakes and prevent similar mishaps from occurring in the future.

    The blog takes a clever approach to [e-discovery]. Each post discusses an e-discovery case that involves an e-discovery mishap, generally by a company employee. It discusses the conduct that constituted the mishap and then offers its ‘e-lesson’ — a suggestion on how to learn from the mistake and avoid it happening to you.

    Although I may have missed some, yours is the first article that I have seen addressing Zubulake II. It is often the lost opinion amongst the others.
