Get a Jump on Information Governance Best Practices at LegalTech with this Boot Camp: eDiscovery Trends

Last year, the Information Governance Initiative (IGI), a cross-disciplinary consortium and think tank focused on advancing information governance was launched (we covered it here and here). Now, for New Yorkers and early birds to next week’s LegalTech® show, the IGI has partnered with Cardozo School of Law, in association with LegalTech New York, to bring you a one-day information governance boot camp next Monday, February 2.

The boot camp is designed exclusively for corporate legal, IT, RIM, and compliance professionals to help them begin implementing information governance (IG) programs in their organizations. The workshop will provide a forum for IG practitioners to exchange experiences, best practices, and ideas related to current and emerging issues with planning and executing an IG strategy while gaining knowledge from the IGI Executive Team. The boot camp runs from 9:30am to 3:00pm, with a cocktail hour afterward – the first of many cocktail hours that will happen next week at the show, no doubt. 🙂

Here are titles of the sessions during the boot camp (interspersed with networking/bio breaks and lunch at 12:15):

  • 10 – 11 a.m.: Identifying and Coordinating the Facets of IG
  • 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.: Forming & Running an IG Steering Committee
  • 1 – 2 p.m.: Taking Action: Quick & Dirty or Big Bang?
  • 2:15 – 2:45 p.m.: Technology Presentation

The boot camp is being held at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, 55 Fifth Avenue (at 12th Street), Room 1008, New York, New York 10003. Registration starts at 9:00am, with an initial “Setting the Stage” session starting at 9:30am. The workshop registration fee is $795. Registration includes meeting materials; a reception following the boot camp; lunch; and breaks while the workshop is in session.
