Emoji Considerations in eDiscovery

Emoji Considerations in eDiscovery: eDiscovery Webinars

Happy face! 🙂 Here’s a webinar hosted by ACEDS that I’ll be conducting with ProSearch and Sidley Austin on emoji considerations in eDiscovery!

On Friday, October 27th at 1pm ET (noon CT, 10am PT), ACEDS will host the webinar Little Pictures Worth A Thousand Words: Emoji Considerations in eDiscovery (available here). In this webinar, we will:

  • Examine the rise and impact of emojis in recent legal cases.
  • Discuss what makes emojis a tricky data type.
  • Review key considerations when encountering emojis in your data set.

I’m excited to be presenting with Jessica Lee, Product Manager at ProSearch and Matt Jackson, Counsel Data Analytics and eDiscovery, Sidley Austin LLP! We will have our 😀 faces on, and I promise that I won’t add any humor or puns to the presentation! 😉

The rise of smart phones and collaboration tools have changed the way we communicate and do business. Now incomplete sentences, abbreviations, and emojis dominate messaging, where a “thumbs up” reaction can signify a contractual agreement, and a “smiley moon” emoji can be construed as advice in the stock market! Register here to learn about important emoji considerations in eDiscovery on October 27th!

So, what do you think? Are you baffled about how to handle emojis in eDiscovery? If so, attend the webinar! And please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
