Oct. 6, 2011 - PRLog -- Interview by Helen Winsor of Legal IQ

Jason Baron, Director of Litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration, joins Legal IQ to discuss technological developments, information retention and edisclosure.

Legal IQ: Can you tell us more about the work of the National Archives and your overall approach to eDiscovery and information management in a government context?

J Baron: That’s a large question. We’re talking about the National Archives in the United States where I’ve had the pleasure to be Director of Litigation for the last eleven years or so and, prior to that, at the Justice Department.

We have a huge task at the National Archives; we are charged by law to manage all of the US Government’s records. They’re under two record statutes, the Federal Records Act and the Presidential Records Act, so part of my job responsibilities is involving White House records from past administrations. Whenever a president leaves office, then by operation of law, the National Archives inherits all of his records, including all electronic records and emails. It’s a huge task and it involves, invariably in the US, lots of litigation, lots of Freedom of Information Act requests, lots of subpoenas and other investigatory demands, and it keeps us hopping.

Legal IQ: With technology advancing so rapidly, how will the US and EU case law be able to keep up and stay relevant in a digital age?
