The E-Discovery Day 2023 Event Schedule has now been announced, with a list of educational webinars, networking opportunities, and more!
Below are key events for the E-Discovery Day 2023 Event Schedule on December 7th. Keep in mind that you need to register for each event that you want to attend separately.
9 am ET/6 am PT:
The Expanding World of E-Discovery: A Look at the Convergence of E-Discovery, Privacy, and Forensics (Sponsored by Exterro)
Corporate counsel and legal professionals face unique and growing data-related challenges in this ever-changing threat landscape. The risk of litigation continues to rise as data requirements grow more complex and data volumes soar. This session will analyze the key areas of data-related risks and provide tools/tips to establish defensible practices for protecting your organization in the event of a cyber breach, internal investigation, or litigation.
10:30 am ET/7:30 am PT:
ESI Protocols: To Be or Not To Be and What to Include (Sponsored by ACEDS)
The debate rages on about the value of ESI Protocols, whether to have one, or how complicated they really need to be to meet the parties’ needs, as well as how courts are viewing them. Join us for a lively discussion on real-world examples of when to use (and not use) a protocol, and the key elements to incorporate to benefit the parties and keep discovery moving forward (and off the judge’s calendar). We’ll discuss language issues in drafting and what the courts want to see from parties.
12 pm ET/9 am PT:
Waldo Generative AI on E-Discovery Day? (Sponsored by EDRM)
Generative AI has dominated the news cycle in 2023: from breathless claims about everything it can and will do, to fears it will annihilate humanity. We’ve seen colossal blunders on the part of attorneys who used GenAI to prepare court submissions and misguided responses from some courts. As we draft this description in the early Fall, it is almost impossible to predict where we will be on December 7. This panel will address both current technical and legal developments and challenges of GenAI from the perspective of computer scientists, lawyers, and judges.
1:30 pm ET/10:30 am PT:
The 5 Most Important E-Discovery Cases of 2023 (Sponsored by eDiscovery Today)
On E-Discovery Day 2023, it’s only fitting that we look back over the year that’s coming to an end and review the most important e-discovery case law rulings of the year. Join Doug Ausin, Mary Mack, Tom O’Connor, and Judge Andrew Peck for a lively discussion that will cover the key lessons you need to know for your e-discovery cases in 2024.
3 pm ET/12 pm PT:
