The Sedona Conference Working Group 1 Annual Meeting is Fast Approaching: eDiscovery Events

It’s not too late to join the distinguished group of dialogue leaders for the 2020 Annual Meeting of The Sedona Conference® (TSC) Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production (WG1).  It’s about two weeks away!

As is the case with so many conferences and meetings this year, the setting has shifted from a hotel conference room to the comfort of your personal virtual space.  Nonetheless, an esteemed group of judges, government officials, and industry leaders will lead six dialogue-driven discussions, Wednesday, October 28, and Thursday, October 29, starting at noon EDT each day and running through 4:00 p.m.  So, you not only don’t have to travel, you don’t even have to devote your entire work day to attend!

  • Social, Technological, and Ethical Challenges of Electronic Evidence in Criminal Cases

  • Moving the Law Forward: Reinventing the Privilege Log
  • Case Law Review: Significant eDiscovery Decisions from 2020
