    The presentation gave the judges a basic understanding of the technology involved, the expectations and obligations imposed by the amended e-discovery court rules, how to manage and balance e-discovery issues that will inevitably arise in their courtroom no matter what types of cases they typically handle, and the legal and practical ramifications their rulings will have on litigants. The three-hour, interactive, multi-disciplinary seminar was designed specifically for state court judges.

    The Judicial College is part of the Judicial Education Program, which primary goals are to refine the formal training activities for new judges and experienced judges with new assignments, to strengthen and expand continuing education programs for all judges, to develop programs which address the distinct educational needs of judges who work in highly specialized areas of law, and to provide training opportunities which improve public access to and knowledge of the judicial system.

Raymond-Flood has extensive litigation experience including pretrial procedure, motion practice, and taking and defending depositions of corporate representatives, employees and expert witnesses throughout the country.

In addition, she lectures nationally about the use of innovative courtroom technology and electronic discovery. Raymond-Flood is a 1991 graduate of Seton Hall University Law School and a 1988 magna cum laude graduate of Seton Hall University. She served as Law Clerk to Honorable Neil H.
