Join the Hon. Ralph Artigliere (ret.), program chair, and leading jurists, practitioners and eDiscovery experts at the offices of King & Spalding in Atlanta, GA, for this unique eDiscovery negotiation training program on March 4-5, 2015.

In this pre-trial legal skills program, participants are trained to work with opposing counsel in a manner that fosters cooperation, in order to ensure efficient, cost-effective fact-finding, and avoid unnecessary disputes, consistent with Rule 1 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the ethical obligations of attorneys as officers of the court."I learned more in that seminar than any others that I’ve attended, or taught."Michael Gifford of Howard & Howard; participant in the Chicago program, 7th Circuit eDiscovery Pilot Program member, and practitioner with 30+ years of litigation experience.

The program, also held in Phoenix in 2013 and Chicago in 2014, features a heavily participatory format. Through the use of a litigation hypothetical and mock exercises, practical cooperative strategies to avoid or resolve conflicts that commonly occur in the preservation, collection, production, and use of ESI are explored, thereby saving time and expense for all parties. The faculty of veteran trial lawyers and judges provide valuable critique of the attendees’ participation.

Under the supervision of the experienced faculty of litigators, judges and eDiscovery experts, all participants are provided the opportunity to take part in the following:

  • Four mock Rule 26(f) conferences, focusing on scope of discovery, form of production, privilege, and social media
  • A mock Rule 16(b) case management conference
  • Participants will have the opportunity to take part in mock Rule 26(f) conferences and a Rule 16(b) case management conference, under the supervision of leading jurists, practitioners and eDiscovery experts.

The program is limited to 40 participants to ensure a high instructor-attendee ratio and a strong participatory experience. It is “invitation only” to ensure a proper balance of participants. Apply today for an invitation to participate in the program.

Participants that complete the program will receive a Sedona Conference Certificate of Completion.
