UF Law’s Annual E-Discovery Conference is Back!: eDiscovery Best Practices

After a one-year hiatus due to cancellation at the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Florida Levin College of Law E-Discovery Conference is back!  And this year the conference is completely online and free for all attendees!

The day long 8th annual conference is scheduled for March 18th and it will include various discussions of eDiscovery topics, including (in caps, no less):

  • THE INITIAL ASSESSMENT PROCESS
  • COLLABORATION AND NEGOTIATION STRATEGIES
  • COLLECTION CHALLENGES FROM TODAY’S EVOLVING DEVICES AND DATA SOURCES
  • BASIC AND ADVANCED SEARCH TECHNIQUES
  • MAXIMIZING DOCUMENT REVIEW SPEEDS AND ACCURACY

And, of course, the conference will have (as always) a judicial panel, an eDiscovery case law panel, and a panel analyzing the eDiscovery impact of rapidly expanding national and international privacy regulations.  It’s literally a “who’s who” of eDiscovery experts once again this year!  And, they anticipate offering at least Florida CLE credit (which may extend to several other states as well) for much of the educational content.  Here’s a link to the full agenda, which starts from 8:30am ET and runs all the way to 6:00pm ET.  Better order lunch in that day so you don’t miss anything!

I’m honored and excited to participate again this year in the conference!  My session will be one of the E-Discovery Nuts & Bolts “ten slides in ten minutes” topics and I will be discussing findings from eDiscovery Today’s 2021 State of the Industry Report (sponsored by EDRM).  I’ll discuss findings from the report and what they could mean for your eDiscovery practice.  And, if you don’t have one already, you can get a copy of the report for FREE by simply by following the blog via email.  To follow eDiscovery Today, enter your email address at the top of the right sidebar where it says “Follow Blog via Email” to receive the report as well as emails with links to new posts.

You can register here to attend the conference, which, in my opinion, is the best one-day eDiscovery conference there is with regard to terrific speakers and topics!

Unlike some other conferences last year which had some time to consider a pivot to online when the pandemic hit, UF Law’s conference had NO time to do that, which led to it being cancelled.  It will be good to reconvene this year for one of my favorite conferences, even if virtually.  Next year, we’re hopefully back together in person!
