To productively converse with your trial team, the National Litigation Support Team, or with any consultants, experts, or vendors about e-discovery (also known as electronic stored information or ESI), we must speak the same language (see Common Litigation Support Terms). A good working knowledge of litigation support terminology helps ensure that the type, volume, output, and use of data is understood and communicated among all members of the team. Once everybody is on the same page in terms of what needs to be reviewed and how, then working with the data and using it to help your case becomes much more manageable
