-====== Discovery ====== +
-  * Discovery is the process by which each party discloses the documents in its possessions relevant to the proceedings. +
-  * In NSW discovery in the equity division is now called disclosure and handled slightly differently. ​ see [[http://​www.lawlink.nsw.gov.au/​practice_notes/​nswsc_pc.nsf/​pages/​574|Practice Note No. SC Eq 11]] +
-  * In arbitration the process is to be determined firstly by consent((Our Steve White takes the position that the arbitration process belongs to the parties and not the arbitator. ​ Other arbitrators may not agree to such an approach.)) and if not by consent then the arbitrator may determine an appropriate procedure after hearing submissions from the parties. +
-  * Electronic discovery is often undertaken by the parties before Mr White. +
-  * Often a [[redfernSchedule|Redfern Schedule]] is used to determine the classes of documents which will be discovered. +
