Heuristica’s CEO and Senior Counsel, Crystal O’Donnell, is co-chair of a group of lawyers who wish to harmonize court rules for electronic discovery across Canada.
The group, comprised of lawyers from across the country, is drafting a proposal to submit to The Uniform Law Conference of Canada (ULCC). “One of the biggest challenges right now is the approach across jurisdictions is very ad hoc and patchwork”, says O’Donnell in the December 5th Focus on E-Discovery issue of Law Times. “For any organization or corporation dealing with litigation in multiple jurisdictions, the rules are very different and some provinces don’t have any rules yet addressing electronic evidence”.
