Sedona’s 7th Annual Staying Ahead of the e-Discovery Curve Conference focuses on cutting-edge developments in e-Discovery. Co-chairs Colleen Kenney, Sidley & Austin, and Eric Mandel, Zelle Hofmann, (both Sedona Conference® Working Group 1 veterans) have put together a noted faculty of seasoned e-Discovery litigators, in-house counsel, and federal judges who will focus on such issues as:

  • Technology Assisted Review (TAR): Why, When and How, and the Practice Issues Raised by its Use;
  • The impact of cloud computing, mobile devices, and BYOD on e-Discovery preservation and production efforts;
  • Meeting the new ABA Model Rules of Professional Responsibility Duty of Competence in connection with e-Discovery;
  • Unique issues that arise in four different categories of litigation: employment, class and mass tort actions, IP litigation, and government investigations;
  • Evolution and the Future of the e-Discovery Team;
  • Judicial Roundtable on Proportionality and Scalability for Small to Mid-size Litigation;
  • The Sedona Conference® International Principles on Cross Border Discovery and Data Privacy – Practical Application; and
  • The ever-popular e-Discovery Case Law and Rules Update.
Said Jamie Boyer, Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP, St. Louis, MO, of last year’s conference:

"This is my first Sedona Conference and I am thoroughly impressed. The panels were informative, interesting, practical and diverse. Getting input from every angle in the process is invaluable."

  • REGISTER NOW because enrollment is limited to the first 200. And this conference always sells out!
  • We are applying for advance accreditation for 11 hours of MCLE credit, including 1 hour of ethics credit, in states requested by those who register.
  • For the benefit of in-house ARMA folks who register: We will also be applying for ICRM Certification Maintenance Program (CMP) advance accreditation.
