Be a Gator for a Day in March and Learn About InfoGov in Houston This Month!: eDiscovery Trends

A two-topic day for us with a couple of terrific educational opportunities!  One free CLE educational program in Houston comes up in just ten days!  And, the other happens in Florida and currently has early bird pricing available for a wonderful full day conference in March!

ACEDS Houston Event

Our first event of the year in the Houston chapter of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) is on Thursday, January 23rd from noon to 1:30pm CT at The Houston Club at 910 Louisiana Street, Suite 4900, Houston, TX 77002. Todd Brown and Lisa Cromwell of Access Sciences will be presenting Information Governance Essentials on that day.

This CLE educational* program will help you understand what Information Governance is and learn practical tips and best practices on applying Information Governance essentials to your Firm and Corporate practice, including a holistic approach to InfoGov and a 7-point InfoGov model!  With data in the world doubling every 1.2 years and data privacy considerations becoming vital due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), Information Governance has become more important than ever, so join us on the 23rd!  You can register here through January 22.

University of Florida E-Discovery Conference

Believe it or not, this is the eighth year for the University of Florida E-Discovery Conference.  As usual, the panel of speakers is an absolute who’s who in eDiscovery (be a gator, get it?).  And, if you act quickly you can save big to attend!

The annual one-day conference will be held this year on Thursday, March 19th from 8:00am to 5:40pm ET.  This year, the focus is to show you how to work smarter, not harder to ensure the success of your project.  As you can always expect from the U-Fla conference, there are a veritable plethora of experts, including Craig Ball, George Socha, Tom O’Connor, Scott Milner, Kelly Twigger, Tessa Jacobs, David Horrigan, Canaan Himmelbaum, Suzanne Clark, Julie Brown, Mike Quartararo, and Ian Campbell.  And, a bunch of distinguished federal and state judges, including U.S. Magistrate Judges William Matthewman, Mac McCoy, Patricia Barksdale, and Gary Jones.  And, I’m honored to be participating for the third straight year as one of the presenters.  Do you like Jeopardy?  If so, you’ll want to catch our session – I’m going to be one of the “contestants” in “E-Discovery Jeopardy”.  Hopefully, I won’t be singing this song afterward!  ;o)

I’ll have more details on this conference as we get closer, but U-Fla is once again offering an “Early Bird Special” for the next week.  You can attend this day long conference packed with practical advice, experts, hot topics, and FL CLE for only $49 livestream or $69 in person!  After that, the price will go up to $99 for live streaming and $199 in person (still a bargain, but you can get it even cheaper if you act quickly).  Last year, the in-person slots were sold out, so that is another reason to act quickly.  You can register here for the conference.  Hope to see you there!
