No Matter Where You Are, You Can Still Attend the UF EDRM E-Discovery Conference: eDiscovery Trends

This year’s University of Florida EDRM E-Discovery Conference is coming up on March 30.  If you plan to attend in person, great!  But, if you can’t attend in person, the good news is that you don’t have to be there, or even in the state of Florida, to attend.

The fourth annual one-day conference provides a pathway for attorneys, paralegals and support professionals to move beyond simple keyword searching to basic data analytics, covering simple tools such as near duplicates analysis, automatic document grouping through technology assisted review, document clustering, and the process of finding “more like this” to manage your data collection during eDiscovery more efficiently.

The conference features a special kick off in the morning with Craig Ball speaking on the nine eDiscovery skills every litigator and trial attorney must have, includes a luncheon address by the Hon. Ralph Artigliere on emerging eDiscovery ethics and includes several sessions with a number of knowledgeable speakers and panelists covering a variety of data analytics topics, concluding with a judicial panel discussion on court expectations of attorney eDiscovery competence, the new federal eDiscovery rules, and “the good, the bad, and the ugly e-discovery hearing and motion practice.”  A link to the Agenda is here.

General and Ethics CLE credits for the conference are currently awaiting approval.  If you plan to attend in person, the event will take place in Holland Hall at the University of Florida, Levin College of Law.  But, if you can’t attend in person, the event will also be streamed online.  So, you don’t have to be present to win!  Or, at least to learn.  :o)

The conference costs $99 to attend in person or $49 to attend online.  It’s free to attend (either in person or online) if you’re a currently enrolled student in an ABA Accredited Law School, Accredited eDiscovery Graduate program, or Accredited Paralegal program or are University and College Faculty or Professional Staff, Judicial Officials, Clerks, or Employees of Government Bodies and Agencies.  To register for the conference, click here.
