For the past 16 months, a group of 56 practitioners, experts, and judges have worked tirelessly to address the problem of discovery scoping in litigation. This new webinar hosted by ACEDS will illustrate how discovery scoping and proportionality analysis has just gotten easier with the public comment version of a New Framework released this month by The George Washington University Law School (GWU).
On Wednesday, February 23rd, ACEDS will host the webinar Discovery Scoping and Proportionality Analysis Just Got Easier at 1pm ET (noon CT, 10:00am PT). Join us for a conversational webinar that combines insights from committee members part of the team responsible for the New Framework with practical recommendations for implementing these new guidelines in your practice:
- Case law and the challenges of proportionality
- How this model gives you the keys to negotiate from a position of strength
- When and how to start your proportionality analysis
I’m excited to be moderating the webinar with excellent panelists covering corporate, law firm, provider and judiciary perspectives on the New Framework:
- Judge George C. Hanks, Jr., United States District Judge, Southern District of Texas
- Mandi Ross, CEO and Managing Director, Insight Optix
- Martin Tully, Partner, Redgrave LLP
