With the abundance of information created and stored by large enterprises, the adoption of efficient records and information management (RIM) practices as a corporate objective is more relevant than ever to legal departments. Reviewing and producing information in response to legal document requests can be burdensome and expensive; and, not having a proper RIM process in place can mean a disorganized or untimely response that can have disastrous consequences. Despite this, the 2010 Law Department Records and Information Survey conducted by ALM Legal Intelligence found that while for many companies records and information management is a function that is needed, an enterprise-wide initiative to launch such a program may not often be present.
This webcast will highlight key findings from this recent survey, including their implications as they apply to the Legal Department. The webcast will also highlight insights from industry experts and best practices employed by organizations with effective RIM programs.
Learn more about the survey results and gain insight into:
- The value of a strong RIM function that is closely aligned with or managed by the Legal Department.
- The importance of a clearly defined RIM process associated with document retrieval and its impact on a reasonable and defensible discovery process.
- Why establishing a formal, enterprise-wide RIM policy and program, including a legally defensible retention schedule, is crucial to limiting litigation cost and risk.
