eDiscovery Trends: Wednesday’s ILTA Sessions


As noted yesterday and Monday, 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 9 hits.  So, there is plenty to talk about!  Sessions in the main conference tracks include:

9:15 AM – 10:30 AM:
