March 2014 Highlights

\r\nOn March 14, EDRM and the University of Florida Levin College of Law held our second annual e-discovery conference, Electronic Discovery for the Small and Medium Case.\r\n\r\nThe entire conference is available online. To register to see the entire conference recordings, click here.\r\n\r\nHere are the sessions, the speakers, and the software demonstrated at the conference:\r\n\r\nSessions\r\n\r\nConference Introduction: It’s the Story, Stupid! E-discovery is more than responding to production requests. At its heart, e-discovery is locating, parsing, and restructuring the voluminous and diverse case data into a coherent, winning story.\r\n\r\nTargeted Collections: Get What You Need To Find the Story. With this session, you will learn how to collect the right data from the start,helping you focus your e-discovery strategy from day one.\r\n\r\nLook at Data Now: Test the Story. Watch our panel use advanced analytics to follow themes, discover case wrinkles, debunk tales the oppositions tells, and demonstrate other tricks of “letting the data tell the story.”\r\n\r\nLuncheon Address: “Successful Advocacy in the 21st Century: Telling a Winning Story on Behalf of Your Client”\r\n\r\nIt’s Not Just Email: Social Media (and So Much More). Stop thinking of e-discovery as just emails and Word documents. Learn from our panel how use a broad range of data to create a “day in the life” of your witness so you can tell your story convincingly to the judge and jury.\r\n\r\nLinking the Critical Conversations. Join our panel to discuss the where and why of finding and following critical communications from you key players to other “unknowns” who may really be the keys to your winning story.\r\n\r\nBuild the Story: Find More Like This. The key to telling your narrative is finding documents that support – or refute – your themes and case concepts. Our panel will show how this is done and even more.\r\n\r\nHone the Story: Review as an Analytic Tool. Reviewers should be an integral part of the trial team; they should draw on preliminary themes and case concepts as they analyze information, and trial team should draw on the analysis done by the reviewers to further refine the themes and concepts. Join our panel as they demonstrate how you might actually do this.\r\n\r\nKeynote Address: “Big Data Meets Big Discovery: Using Tomorrows Tools to Solve Today’s Litigation Problems”\r\n\r\nSpeakers & Moderators\r\n
