Tomorrow is PREX and it Has a Terrific Lineup of Speakers and Topics: eDiscovery Trends

It’s hard to believe that the PREX conference, conducted every year by Zapproved, has been around for ten years!  But it has and it’s being held as a one-day virtual conference and community event tomorrow.  And it’s FREE to attend!

The virtual, one day PREX event will be tomorrow, September 28th from 10AM to 6PM ET and it has a full range of sessions with terrific speakers and topics, with a judicial panel, keynote address and dual tracks for innovation and technology.  Here are a couple of notable sessions:

10:15 AM-11:15: Judicial Roundtable

Our panel of judges will explore their take on competence, proportionality, cooperation, and the practical limits of judicial oversight for solving today’s most pressing ediscovery challenges.  An impressive panel of current and former judges includes: Hon. Bernice Donald, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit; Hon. Ron Hedges (Ret.), Dentons; Hon. Frank Maas (Ret.), JAMS, Inc.; Hon. Kristen L. Mix, U.S. District Court, District of Colorado; Hon. Andrew Peck (Ret.), DLA Piper; Hon. Xavier Rodriguez, U.S. District Court, Western District of Texas.

11:15 AM-12:00 PM: Conference Keynote – Lies and Liberty: The Future of Free Speech in a Divided America with David McCraw

There’s no denying that there has been a seismic shift in the information ecosystem in recent years. We’ve seen the rise of disinformation, social media platforms’ fumbling attempts to moderate content, the “fake news” attacks on mainstream media, and the growing movement to rethink the First Amendment.

As Deputy General Counsel at The New York Times, David McCraw has spent almost 20 years as the newspaper’s top newsroom lawyer. In this keynote, David brings his vast experience to the evolving issues of free speech – including what’s coming next.

PREX concludes with a Closing Reception from 4:30pm to 6:00pm ET.

There’s more information about PREX here, which also includes a link to register for the event.  It’s a great opportunity to mix some terrific educational sessions and networking with your industry colleagues!
