ABA's E-Discovery Workshop In February

Monday, January 31, 2011 - 01:00

The American Bar Association has scheduled The Second Electronic Discovery and Digital Evidence Practitioners' Workshop for two days in San Francisco. It will be held Friday and Saturday, February 18 and 19, at the University of California - Hastings College of Law, 200 McAllister Street in San Francisco, beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Friday and ending at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday.

This workshop will provide hands-on education for in-house and retained counsel who are involved in litigation that requires electronic discovery and digital evidence management. It will also be useful to executives and other litigation stakeholders from large and small public and private organizations who will learn how to best prepare technical staff and information systems to respond to requests for ESI. It is designed for intermediate to advanced ESI litigation practitioners and those who design, operate and are responsible for ESI systems.

Topics to be covered will range from ESI search trends and developments to emerging digital evidence issues and ethics to evidentiary issues from a criminal perspective.

The faculty is composed of leading federal magistrate judges, ESI litigation practitioners, forensics experts and technology thought leaders. Among them are Hon. Andrew Peck, U.S, magistrate judge, Southern District of New York, who will offer the opening address, and Hon. John M. Facciola, U.S. magistrate judge, District of Columbia, who will provide the closing address.
