The annual EDRM workshop brings together highly motivated judges, practitioners, consultants, service providers, and software vendors to work collaboratively on exciting and challenging ediscovery projects that impact the industry and the profession.   Members attend to pending projects, and they propose and discuss new projects.  The workshop will be held in an intimate environment at Duke’s beautiful law school campus on May 15-17, 2019.

New this year is a panel of in-house counsel from Exxon/Mobil, American Airlines, and GSK, who will address their biggest ediscovery challenges and how best to work with outside ediscovery consultants, service providers, and software vendors.  A later panel of three judges will address what ediscovery information is most useful to them and what information they consider to be the least useful.

EDRM continues to be the leader in the ediscovery and information governance field.  This past year, TAR Guidelines were approved, a draft of a TAR protocol is progressing nicely, and more than 250 federal judges responded to a discovery survey administered by EDRM/Exterro.  Learn about progress being made in eight pending projects, ranging from AI, to a compliance code of conduct governing GDPR, to a proportionality template.

Not a member? We welcome all to attend.  And all new members are encouraged to join a new or ongoing project. The registration fee is $650.00 (Current EDRM members can request a promo code for $150 off registration.)  Nonmembers may add an annual EDRM membership for just $50 more when registering for the workshop, for a total payment of $700.
