Alignment of Document Retention and Litigation Hold Strategies
George Morrison, of the Education Law Group, provided an in-depth review of document retention and litigation hold policies and procedures at The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS) 2013 Managing Risk Workshop in Baltimore, Maryland.
Aligning a school’s document retention policy with its litigation hold strategy can be a challenge. The session focused on the key components of document retention policies, including drafting, implementation, and suspension of the destruction of information in the event of litigation. Key liability issues related to the failure to properly implement and follow document retention and litigation hold policies were also addressed.
