EDRM Detroit Symposium

EDRM Detroit Symposium Keynote and Speakers Announced: eDiscovery Best Practices

Earlier this week, EDRM announced the details of their upcoming EDRM Detroit Symposium, including the keynote and other speakers!

The EDRM Detroit Symposium will be held on June 1-2 at the Hollywood Casino at Greektown in Detroit, MI – just three weeks from today!

The event kicks off June 1st, with a Networking Cocktail Reception where you can “get your eDiscovery groove on” and network with like-minded professionals and catch up with old friends. On the following day, get ready for an action-packed day of learning and sharing.


The agenda (available for download here) includes a CLE session sponsored by EDRM Trusted Partner, Reed Smith, called, “You Be the Judge,” an opening keynote from Craig Ball, featured speaker, FTI’s Jerry Bui on Microsoft Copilot and ChatGPT Integration into Front Office Apps and a Judicial Story Telling Panel on eDiscovery Disasters from the Bench moderated by the Hon. James Francis IV (ret) with Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Stafford (ED MI), District Court Judge Iain Johnston (ND IL), Magistrate Judge Kristen Mix (CO) and Michigan Appellate Judge Christopher Yates.

Regarding the “You Be the Judge” panel, I’m excited to be participating along with David R. Cohen, Partner at Reed Smith, Lea Malani Bays, Partner at Robbins Geller and Cristin Traylor, Director, Law Firm Strategy Marketing at Relativity!

Project Trustees will gather input and discuss future direction for many EDRM projects including EDRM 2.0, AI, the Special Master and eDiscovery Mediation, Privilege Logs, DupeID, Text Message Metadata Primer and more.

There will also be sponsors that will showcase the latest technologies and solutions in the market. I’m also told that sponsorship opportunities are still available, please reach out to info@edrm.net for more information.


Of course, one of the best things about an EDRM meeting is the opportunity to collaborate with project teams and exchange ideas with industry colleagues, which is one of the things that makes EDRM meetings unique and enjoyable, and I’ve made many contacts over the years in EDRM meetings! Good to have them back!

Here’s the link to register. Hope to see you there!
