In today’s “Digital Age,” everything changes at lightning-speed and everyone is required to adapt quickly. In the world of eDiscovery, things are no different; being undereducated and underprepared is no longer an option. However, an expectation gap still exists between what judges expect related to the process of eDiscovery and what attorneys think is appropriate, which is clearly shown in Exterro’s 2nd Annual Federal Judges Survey. Like last year, we asked judges to participate, but to gain a broader view, this year we invited attorneys who specialize in e-discovery to weigh in on the same questions (Respondents: 14 Federal Judges, 22 Attorneys). The results this year will give legal professionals an inside look on how judges and attorneys respond to the same e-discovery questions along with information to improve their pre-trial litigation practices in 2016.
• Overview of survey results around the FRCP eDiscovery amendments, general eDiscovery competency in the legal market and the effects of other emerging technology trends (mobile, social media, cloud) on litigation practices.
• Panelists from both sides of the bench, judge and attorney, will compare and contrast the attorney and judges responses, enabling attendees to see where the major gaps in eDiscovery occur.
• Best practices and tips to improve your litigation process that will help secure defensibility around eDiscovery activities without increasing legal spend.
Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Any professional (attorney, paralegal, litigation support, general counsel, IT professional, CIOs) who is involved with litigation, as eDiscovery is an integral part of the discovery and early case assessment process. By having a greater grasp on eDiscovery principles and where problems may arise, litigation professionals can mitigate eDiscovery risks such as spoliation of evidence and increased legal spend based on collecting and reviewing irrelevant data.
