EDRM, the leading standards organization for the e-discovery market, has released a downloadable PDF version of its EDRM Glossary, a comprehensive glossary of e-discovery terms. At more than 330 pages, this is one of the industry’s most comprehensive listing of electronic discovery terms.
Practical Educational Resource for E-Discovery Community
The glossary, in searchable PDF format, lists terms in alphabetical order with definitions and includes attributions where available.
“Experienced legal and e-discovery professionals have developed a fairly broad understanding of the processes and terms related to our craft,” says George Socha, EDRM co-founder, “but none of us knows it all, and the technologies and language surrounding e-discovery continue to advance. Our goal with the glossary is to provide a tool that will enhance e-discovery knowledge and understanding, and evolve with the industry.”
First launched in 2006, the EDRM Glossary includes terms from specialized glossaries on collection, metrics, search and information governance, as well as glossary content on search and predictive coding.
The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) creates practical resources to improve e-discovery and information governance.
Since 2005, the e-discovery community has relied on EDRM for leadership, standards, best practices, tools, guides and test data sets to improve electronic discovery and information governance. Member individuals, law firms, corporations and government organizations actively contribute to the direction of EDRM.
The terms are listed in alphabetical order with definitions and attributions where available.
This resource is also a great resource for organizational in-house business continuity planning groups and information system management teams to develop more knowledge of e-discovery practices and complex e-discovery issues.
This information will greatly assist in better understanding any compliance management requirements resulting from a potential “legal hold” or any related regulatory compliance request under litigation proceedings against your company.
