Tomorrow I will be speaking on the opening panel at the Advanced E-Discovery Institute @ Georgetown Law. The event draws hundreds of lawyers and technologists to Washington DC to discuss the latest advances in the rapidly evolving field of E-Discovery.
It was a pleasure to participate in the Fourth Annual ASU-Arkfeld E-Discovery and Digital Evidence Conference. The conference featured a wide variety of speakers from the bench, law firms, in-house and the legal technology space. The conference was sponsored by the Center for Law, Science & Innovation @ Arizona State Law.
As discussed in a prior post, I will be featuring some of my students who are participating in my law, technology and/or entrepreneurship courses here at MSU Law (access the course list here) — Many of my students are doing interesting and exciting things and so I thought I would take some time to highlight them! For more information about these students or my courses – please feel free to contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org

The focus of my panel was “E-Discovery in 2015 and Beyond.” My Panel included: The Honorable Faith Hochberg, United States District Court for the District of New Jersey; Joe Looby, FTI Technology & Dawn Hall, FTI Consulting. As was true last year, I was the only Law Professor asked to speak at an event which draws more than 12,000 attendees from many of the law divisions of the Fortune 500, many of the law firms in the AmLaw100 / NLJ 250 and the large number of emerging legal technology companies which as Bill Henderson noted are not really being held back by Rule 5.4.
