“E-Discovery Day” is Tomorrow!: eDiscovery Trends

We have days to celebrate all sorts of things, especially in this holiday season.  As we mentioned a couple of months ago, eDiscovery enthusiasts now have their own day – “E-Discovery Day”, which is tomorrow!

Brought to you by EDRM, Exterro, Actiance and Today’s General Counsel, E-Discovery Day (as stated in their website) is “an industry wide initiative aimed at promoting e-discovery awareness and education. E-Discovery Day will bring together a diverse set of professionals to share experiences, discuss key trends and offer best practices over a variety of mediums with the goal of facilitating and promoting e-discovery education to the entire legal and business community.”

George Socha, founder of EDRM, states that “E-discovery is going to be with us for the long haul, which means that all of us working to resolve disputes need to improve our e-discovery IQ. With its webinars, content and other events, E-Discovery Day offers each of us a great opportunity to do just that.”

The webinar sessions have all been scheduled, the speakers have been identified and the sessions will run from 8:30am to 3:30pm PT tomorrow.  Here they are (speakers in parentheses):
