Alert! The International Journal of Arbitration, Mediation and Dispute Management

I am rather pleased to announce that the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) will publish my condensed dissertation, titled : Electronic Discovery/Disclosure: From Litigation to International Commercial Arbitration  in The International Journal of Arbitration, Mediation and Dispute Management, Sweet & Maxwell, Volume 74 Number 4 November 2008.

When I started on my research back in October 2007, ediscovery/edisclosure was not a term recognised in the IT corporate environment in London. I know this for a fact as my colleague and friends said ‘what is that?’ when I told them my subject matter for my dissertation.

I came across ediscovery only because I was looking for a topic for my dissertation. As I was involved in a Document Management implementation project (with many challenges!) last year, I decided to explore various IT and legal issues related to document management. So, I too have no clue what is ediscovery until I started my research. The research subsequently led me to start this blog and also opened up a vast area of ‘unknown or ‘mysteries’ to explore further. So far, I have met several interesting folks from various fields.

Right now, I am looking for ways to pursue a PhD and will welcome any suggestions as to where to get funding and/or sponsors. I am told three years full time will costs a ‘lot’ of £££££. It will be worth more than £££££ as I know what I want to research will be stuff worth writing about.

For my IT friends and those in the IT corporate world and also the IT community in general, ediscovery/edisclosure may still be a mystery or simply another ‘e-something-fad’ and if you think you can avoid or rebel, think again and share your views here. Even the storage people (or IT storage stewards) have shared their views, read what was reported in Users rebel against e-Discovery liabilities by Beth Pariseau, June 19th, 2008
