eDiscovery Trends: Tuesday’s ILTA Sessions


As noted yesterday, the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) annual educational conference of 2011 is happening this week and eDiscoveryDaily is here to report about the latest eDiscovery trends being discussed at the show.  There’s still time to check out the show if you’re in the Nashville area with a number of sessions available and over 280(!) exhibitors providing information on their products and services, including (shameless plug warning!) my company, CloudNine Discovery, which is previewing the version 10.5 release of our linear review application, OnDemand®, prior to release next month.

Perform a “find” on today’s ILTA conference schedule for “discovery” and you’ll get 6 hits.  So, there is plenty to talk about!  Sessions in the main conference tracks include:

9:15 AM – 10:30 AM & 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM (2 part session):

Hands-On: Forensics 101 for Legal Professionals

Description: Forensic collection is often associated with full-disk imaging. However, targeted and remote collection has been commonplace for several years and has become best practice. Taught by a former attorney and computer forensics expert, this session will dispel such misconceptions around the concept of forensic search and collection and walk attendees through a series of hands-on exercises. Legal professionals will learn requirements and best practices to ensure their collections are forensically sound, and they will learn the pros and cons of different collection methodologies, enabling them to effectively evaluate their options in the real world. Attendees will use a forensics-based e-discovery platform to perform hands-on exercises covering acquisition, validation, chain of custody, data analysis and reporting.

Speaker is: David Speringo – AccessData (Summation)

1:30 PM – 2:30 PM:

Software for Your Litigation Support Tool Belt

Description: There are many options for electronic Bates labeling, redaction, PST management, metadata retrieval, load file creation, etc. This session will highlight the various tools and utilities available to litigation support professionals regardless of firm size. We will focus on some industry standard must-haves and little-known jewels.

Speakers are: Kyle Neitzel – Lindquist & Vennum PLLP; Danny Chan – Bereskin & Parr LLP
