Bloomberg Law to Spotlight E-Discovery Resources and Expertise at Live Event, Webcast

ARLINGTON, VA (November 21, 2017) —Bloomberg Law will demonstrate its depth of knowledge and resources for e-discovery professionals at two events next week, hosting a special live event in New York City, “Emerging Technologies & Legal Ethics,” on Thursday, November 30.  As part of E-Discovery Day on Friday, December 1, Bloomberg Law is sponsoring two webcasts: “‘Real’ E-Discovery News: Reporters Recap Top E-Discovery Storylines From 2017” and “E-Discovery Judges Get Candid: A Practical Conversation.”

“The proliferation of electronically stored information and evidence continues to present new challenges for lawyers and law departments, and Bloomberg Law is proud to present this essential thought leadership to guide e-discovery practitioners,” said Scott Falk, Vice President & General Manager, Health Care & Litigation, Bloomberg Law. “In addition to providing expert reporting to help e-discovery professionals keep up-to-date on emerging trends and developments, Bloomberg Law now offers a comprehensive, dedicated E-Discovery Practice Center, which is the only resource of its kind available on an integrated legal research and business intelligence platform.”

The in-person, CLE-eligible event will be held in New York City from 4 to 7 p.m. on November 30, with a reception following. The expert panels will examine the ethical issues associated with technology assisted review (TAR) and predictive coding, as well as how lawyers may be able to use artificial intelligence to draft legal briefs and other documents. Attendees will engage with experts and explore:

  • Ethical duties implicated by emerging technologies
