Offices of Seyfarth Shaw LLP, Chicago, Illinois
Please join us for a Working Group 6 (WG6) membership-building event at the offices of Seyfarth Shaw, in Chicago, IL, on Monday, April 24, 2017, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. A distinguished panel, including panel moderator Jim Daley of Seyfarth Shaw, Jennifer Hamilton of Deere & Company, and Cameron Krieger of Latham & Watkins, will lead a dialogue on The Sedona Conference International Litigation Principles (Transitional Edition). The International Litigation Principles was first published in 2011. In the intervening years, there have been important developments in data protection law world-wide, including the passage of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU, the replacement of the "Safe Harbor" data transfer framework with the new "Privacy Shield," and the emergence of the APEC data privacy framework in the Asia-Pacific region. The situation is still fluid, particularly the implementation of GDPR between now and its effective date of May, 2018. Despite this, the six International Litigation Principles have remained relevant and useful. The Transitional Edition extensively updates the commentary and analysis and includes two new model court orders to facilitate cross-border transfer of personal data for discovery in U.S. litigation.
The event is open to the entire legal community, and there is no cost to attend.
Non-members in attendance that are interested in becoming WG6 members will receive a $100 discount for a Working Group Series (WGS) membership. Please be sure to remind any friends, colleagues or clients who are interested in joining - WGS membership is in-for-one, in-for-all. Once a WGS member, one is eligible to become a member and take part in the activities of all Working Groups, including WG6.
