Day 1 of the Conference features a lineup of nationally recognized experts who will guide you through practical steps of effectively managing the eDiscovery process in both the initial stages and throughout the course of litigation. You will learn how to use legal holds to successfully preserve electronic information and how to conduct a meet-and-confer conference with aplomb. Various breakout sessions also will equip you with the knowledge and understanding of eDiscovery principles you need to succeed in your particular practice.
Day 2 of the Conference begins with a keynote address by U.S. Magistrate Judge John Facciola, returning by popular demand. The sessions that follow will walk you through some of the nuts and bolts of conducting eDiscovery, such as using Technology Assisted Review (TAR) to maximize the value and minimize the costs of eDiscovery for your clients, preserving and collecting electronic evidence, and addressing proportionality in allocating costs. Breakout sessions will focus on issues tailored to your practice, whether you deal with social media issues, forensic digital evidence, electronic evidence in criminal proceedings, or all of the above.
The third and final day, often viewed as the highlight of the conference, spotlights our visiting jurists. U.S. Magistrate Judge Craig Shaffer will give the final keynote address, which will be followed by a judicial roundtable that will give you a judge’s eye view of many eDiscovery issues you deal with day to day. Breakout sessions will fill you in on how to deal with eDiscovery issues surrounding ADR and corporate “bring-your-own-device” policies. We wrap up with explaining vital case law updates in the dynamic, ever-changing eDiscovery landscape.
