[Session 8] eDiscovery in the #MeToo Era: The Need for Background and Viewpoint Diversity on the eDiscovery Team

Date: 
Friday, March 6, 2020 - 9:30am to 10:30am
Panel Description: 

Before the 2006 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, eDiscovery usually meant working with word processing, email, and databases found in corporate IT environments. eDiscovery today involves identifying, locating, collecting, and reviewing electronically stored documents, communications, and digitally recorded interactions created by diverse users of diverse technologies. Understanding the way people use these technologies and understanding the content and significance of the data itself requires knowledge of languages, history, social mores, and emerging social trends. This panel asks whether your eDiscovery team is diverse enough to effectively conduct 21st-century, and what you can do to stay on the cutting edge.
