ASU-Arkfeld eDiscovery and Digital Evidence Conference – eDiscovery Trends

Apparently, next week is the week for eDiscovery conferences.

Last week, I told you about a two-day program being hosted next week in my hometown of Houston by The Sedona Conference®.  Then, on Tuesday, I told you about the Second Annual Electronic Discovery Conference for the Small and Medium Case, hosted by the Levin College of Law at the University of Florida and EDRM also next week.  Now, here is another conference alternative for next week – the Third Annual ASU-Arkfeld eDiscovery and Digital Evidence Conference, hosted by Arizona State University and noted eDiscovery expert Michael Arkfeld.

The conference will be held next week, March 12-14 at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law / Armstrong Hall at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.  As the downloadable brochure states, the conference will be “[f]ocusing on the practical issues affecting the discovery and admission of electronic information.  Attendees will be participating with thought leaders and practitioners of eDiscovery on issues impacting legal professionals locally, nationally, and globally.”

The conference will include:

  • noted eDiscovery judges, including Shira A. Scheindlin (who will be giving the keynote address on the first morning), John Facciola, and Craig Shaffer;
  • knowledgeable in-house counsel and eDiscovery specialists, including Robert Amicone from Office Depot, Tom Morrissey from Purdue Pharma and Kit Goetz from Qualcomm;
  • distinguished outside counsel, including Robert Singleton from Squire Sanders, Mark Sidoti from Gibbons, Joy Woller from Lewis Roca Rothgerber, Maura Grossman from Wachtell, and Ariana Tadler from Milberg and;
  • dedicated litigation support professionals including Tom O’Connor, Steven Goldstein, and Anne Kershaw.

Topics run the full range of the eDiscovery life cycle – from information management strategies to dispose of “zombie data” (I like that term) to meet and confer, preservation, collection, data analytics and technology assisted review, production formats, eDiscovery for criminal cases and cross-border issues and eDiscovery project management best practices.  You can earn up to 15 hours of CLE credit for attending.

It’s too late for early bird pricing, but regular attendees can still register prior to the show for $595.  Government, non-profit and paralegal registrants can do so for $345; if you’re a student, it only costs $95 to attend.  Those rates are $695/$395/$115, respectively, if you wait until the day the show starts.  Discounted group rates are also available.  You can register for the conference online here.

So, what do you think? Do you plan to attend the program, or perhaps one of the other programs next week? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
