LTPI launches ediscovery “glossary of terms”

Are you clear on the difference between Native and Tiff Production in ediscovery? Or how about a Native File versus NSF file? A new Production Glossary of technology terms used in the practise of eDiscovery has been released for public comment by the Legal Technology Professionals Institute (LTPI), a US legal tech industry association.

According to the organisation’s Web site, “While a number of useful industry-wide glossaries exist, we could not find one that specifically discussed document production, nor one that discussed not only the “what”, but also the “why”, so we created one. 

The glossary is available at

 “LTPI is a non-profit association where members of the legal technology ecosystem can come together to engage in meaningful conversations about technology and legal strategy beyond the theoretical, and create pragmatic points of reference based upon the realities of what attorneys and clients value, do, and need,” said Quin Gregor, Board of Directors Member of LTPI.

“The LTPI production glossary creates this type of general understanding and lays important groundwork.”

It is described as a work in progress and submissions are invited at
