The following are comments about Zubulake’s e-Discovery from the students of Lisa J. Berry-Tayman Esq. CIPP/US E-Discovery 2013 course at Indiana University/Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI).
I absolutely love the book; it is not only informative but very compelling.
Laura's will and determination to fight on and not fold under the pressure she was under for several years was inspiring. I don't know how many individuals could have withstood the stress, financial burden and the uncertainty of what the future would hold after a lifetime of hard work, but Laura did it it was a landmark case for ediscovery.
I thought this book was incredible. It was a excellent exposure to the real world of litigation. As a woman, this book was inspiring. It related to me on a whole level I wouldn't have expected. It was also an easy read. You could see her experience through her eyes. I felt like she was sitting right next to me telling me the story. I most definitely approve this book and I advise you to continue to use it in later classes.
It was much easier to read than a normal, boring text book. The book allowed us to see more clearly how she coordinated the different issues and points so that it could be presented as an argument for her case.
Loved it! Best class read I had this year. Keep it.
Absolutely. The story revealed in Zubulake's e-Discovery provides the reader with insight lacking in the average textbook, perspective. Laura Zubulake's story of her hopes and fears concerning the case are chronicled from the initial discovery issues through the end of litigation, giving readers her legal strategy and personal reactions to various elements of the case. Additionally, the outcome of her case led to multiple legal opinions and revolutionized the way that ESI was handled both by corporations and third party law firms alike. Multiple sources view the book as a must read for any attorney and therefore, without doubt the book should be read not only in relation to legal studies, but in corporate practice and technology.
I think that the Zubulake book is an exciting, real world learning tool. It should definitely be kept for next year's class because it is very easy to read and keeps you wanting more, much unlike a traditional text book. Thank you so much for adding such a great book to the class, and thanks to Laura for all her hard work that lead to new, necessary legal precedents.
is an inspirational account of an individual standing on principle, persevering against a formidable opponent, and achieving vindication, accountability, and justice. It is a 21st century version of David & Goliath
set on Wall Street that resulted in the establishment of landmark e-discovery law, encouraged the development of a multi-billion dollar IT business, and influenced the way in which organizations manage information.
