Tuesday’s ILTACON Sessions: eDiscovery Trends

As noted yesterday, the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) annual educational conference of 2015 (now known as ILTACON) is happening this week and eDiscovery Daily will be reporting this week about the latest eDiscovery trends being discussed at the show.  There’s still time to check out the show if you’re in the Las Vegas area with a number of sessions available and over 190(!) exhibitors providing information on their products and services.

Perform a “find” on today’s ILTACON conference schedule for “discovery”, “litigation support” or “information governance” and you’ll get at least 4 sessions with hits (including this one where I’ll be presenting, for a whopping six minutes).  So, there is plenty to talk about!  Sessions in the main conference tracks include:

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM:

To Share Or Not To Share: The Debate Over Disclosure of E-Discovery Protocols

Building Strategic Litigation Support Relationships

Gain insight on building and maintaining strategic relationships in your litigation support organization.
