Advanced Issues In E-Discovery
Macaronis Institute for Trial & Appellate Advocacy

If you practice anywhere in or around litigation, you have a new job. Like it or not, you are now an e-discovery expert by default. As such, you need to keep abreast of new cases, new products and vendors, and new expectations from courts and clients about how you will manage the disruption and expense of this constantly evolving area of the law. Congratulations. Now what?

Expanding on last year’s successful introductory seminar, this program offers a more advanced look at e-discovery issues for those who know the outlines of the new federal rules but are looking for practical advice to help survive and thrive in this new role. You will hear from a diverse range of panelists, including experts from litigation support departments, inside and outside counsel’s offices, academia and the federal bench. Together, they will offer real world solutions to a variety of challenges:

How to assemble an e-discovery support team
How to select cost-effective vendors and technological tools to gather, review and analyze data
How and when to adopt forensic controls
How to develop and implement effective “litigation holds”
How to negotiate your way through meet-and-confer sessions and courtroom appearances
How to avoid ethical pitfalls along the way
Don’t let the anniversary of the federal rules amendments next December pass by without getting yourself up to speed in this critical area. Your new job depends on it.
