Over the past few months, Data Narro has been researching e-discovery resources on the Internet and reviewing scores of technology-focused legal blogs. Over time it became clear that a handful of e-discovery blogs stood above the rest. This post will highlight the top six e-discovery blogs that deserve your attention.
Keep in mind, this is a selectively curated list. Some good blogs didn’t make the cut – perhaps they were infrequently updated or didn’t maintain a focus on e-discovery. Others didn’t make the list because the writing lacked clarity and focus.
With the launch of our own digital forensics and e-discovery blog this month, Data Narro will be highlighting the best articles from these and other resources, supplementing it with our own original content. Please sign up to receive our monthly newsletter that contains the best blog content from the previous month. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook!
