E-Discovery Guide for Lawyers
The City Bar’s E-Discovery Working Group has issued an E-Discovery Guide for Lawyers. The Guide is intended to offer an overview of procedures and steps an attorney should take when handling electronically-stored information (ESI), including: the identification of ESI; knowing who is responsible for the ESI and how and where it was stored; and the importance of knowing how the ESI has been preserved. The Guide also offers a list of e-discovery resources attorneys may want to consult for a more detailed explanation of an attorney's duties and responsibilities concerning e-discovery.

Committee Involvement--It's Never too Late
Committees are how the City Bar’s work gets done. Working on a committee can give you great experience while opening up a number of career doors, some you may not even anticipate.

A full list of the City Bar committees along with a brief description of each and an application form can be found on the City Bar’s website. As a number of City Bar committees have more applicants than available slots, please consider applying to more than one committee.
