Examine recent trends and caselaw in the vanishing specialty of e-discovery.
Yes, vanishing. Discovery of “documents” in litigation is now primarily, at times exclusively, the practice of managing, reviewing and using electronic data. “E-discovery” will soon just be plain “discovery.” Which means that every legal practitioner should be current on how technology is changing the way data is created, stored, and used as evidence in litigation. We will talk about what legal practitioners need to know to keep up.
“Big Data” is changing e-discovery. Are you ready?
“Big Data” is the proliferation of data that is created by not just people or entities, but millions of “smart” devices, which track times, locations and actions in sometimes frightening detail. This avalanche of detailed data can be extremely valuable to the skilled legal practitioner in litigation, performing due diligence or conducting an audit or investigation - but only if the practitioner knows where to start and where to look. Our expert panel will discuss how to leverage technology to be able to understand and illustrate a narrative, taking data off of a screen and using it “IRL” (“in real life”) as persuasive communication.
