Announcing Third Annual LTNY Thought Leader Series! – eDiscovery Trends

The jumping light bulb can only mean one thing: It’s time for another thought leader interview series!

In our efforts to continue to bring our readers perspectives from various thought leaders throughout the eDiscovery community, eDiscoveryDaily has published several thought leader interviews over the nearly 2 1/2 years since our inception.  The last two years at LegalTech New York (LTNY), we were able to conduct interviews with several eDiscovery industry thought leaders and announced the schedule for those interviews after the show.  Click here to see the schedule for last year’s interviews and here to see the schedule for 2011’s interviews with links in each schedule to each interview we conducted.
