On Thursday and Friday, November 17 and 18, Georgetown University School of law offers Advanced E-Discovery Institute -- Making the case: Developing Legally Defensible E-Discovery Best Practices.
The Institute is located at the Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, 1250 South Hayes Street in Arlington, Virginia. It begins at 8:15 a.m. on day one and ends at 5:30 p.m. Day two begins at 8:30 a.m. end ends at 4:30 p.m.
As e-discovery continues to mature, the courts are coming back to one of the most fundamental tenets of litigation: defensibility. Even if evidence is electronic, voluminous or grounded in a novel technology, litigants must be prepared to defend how they identify sources of data, preserve, harvest, cull, review and produce the data, as well as the basis for having it admitted into evidence at trial. The program will focus on this central issue that is implicated in every aspect of e-discovery.
Attendees will learn how large companies are strategically planning for comprehensive compliance and e-discovery programs, including making ROI case for the same. The faculty will examine the unique e-discovery challenges parties continue to encounter by adopting cloud and social media applications.
Other topics include exploring the inner workings of predictive coding technology and defending the use of such software in civil discovery; gaining perspective on the latest federal rules revisions; drafting a corporate e-discovery policy; and e-discovery challenges presented by investigations before federal agencies and multi-national litigation.
Among the speakers are Hon. Paul W. Grimm, chief magistrate judge, U.S. District Court, District of Maryland; Mark L. Austrian, Kelley Drye & Warren LLP; Ian Hochman, Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP; David J. Lender, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP; Patrick L. Oot, special counsel, Electronic Discovery, U.S. SEC; and Dr. Jan Puzicha, chief technology officer, Recommind.
