Georgetown Gears Up
Lawrence Center checks in to remind us that the early-bird rate for the upcoming Georgetown Law CLE Advanced eDiscovery Institute expires Oct. 17 ($100 discount). The conference will be held November 17-18 at The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City-Arlington, Va.
Chief Magistrate Judge for the U.S. District Court, District of Maryland Paul Grimm will deliver the keynote. He's one of at least 15 judges who are scheduled to speak at the annual "judge-fest" — others include high-visibility U.S. District Court jurists Lee Rosenthal, Shira Scheindlin John Facciola, James Francis, Andrew Peck, Nan Nolan, David Waxse, Elizabeth Laporte.
Francis will moderate a session on "Statistics and Sampling for Lawyers: How to Apply a Well-Accepted Methodology in the World of eDiscovery; Scheindlin is a panel on "Pragmatic Practices for Resolving eDiscovery Cross-Border Conundrums." Other conference topics range from the opening session, "E-Discovery Case Law Update," to corporate approaches to electronic information management; "The Business of e-Discovery," state approaches, social media, cloud computing, project management, and so much more.
LTN board member and frequent contributor Patrick Oot will moderate a panel on "E-Discovery in Investigations and Litigation Before Federal Agencies," (he is general counsel with The Electronic Discovery Institute and special counsel for e-discovery with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission).
If last year was any predictor, this is a "must-attend" conference. I will be there, hope to see you!
