eDiscovery Conference for Small to Medium Cases – eDiscovery Trends

Last week, I told you about a two-day program being hosted in my hometown of Houston by The Sedona Conference®.  Here is another conference that you can attend no matter where you are, for a very reasonable price!

The Levin College of Law at the University of Florida and EDRM is hosting its second annual electronic discovery conference for the Small and Medium Case this year on March 14.  As the registration page states:

“The University of Florida E-Discovery/EDRM Conference for the Small and Medium Case this year focuses on letting your data tell the winning litigation story. E-discovery is more than responding to production requests. At its heart, e-discovery is locating, parsing, and restructuring the voluminous and diverse case data – emails, texts, word processing docs, social media postings and messages, databases, digital photos, browsing history, computer logs, and more – into a coherent, winning story.”

The co-chairs of the program are William Hamilton, Executive Director, University of Florida E-Discovery Project; Partner, Quarles & Brady LLP; and Provost at Bryan University (other than that, he’s not busy) and George Socha, Co-Founder, EDRM; and President, Socha Consulting LLC (and perennial thought leader interviewee on this blog).

Presenters include attorneys from firms such as Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, Phelps Dunbar, Shook, Hardy & Bacon, Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease; vendors such as kCura, Nuix and Nextpoint and iConect and three Florida judges.  The agenda starts at the Levin Advocacy Center at UF Law at 8:00am ET for breakfast and goes through the reception that ends at 6:30pm ET.  Sessions are from 9:00am to 5:20pm ET.  Here’s a tentative agenda and a complete list of presenters.

The conference costs $199 if you’re attending in person.  But, you don’t have to be in Florida to participate.  You can stream the entire conference for only $99.  And, if you’re a full-time law student (or a member of the UF faculty or professional staff), it’s free to attend in person or stream online!  Can’t beat that.

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