Track Descriptions You've heard the theoretical discussions on e-discovery - now learn the actionable steps to manage it in a faster, defensible, cost-effective and strategic manner. These practical, interactive sessions will focus on how inside counsel and law firms can utilize new technology and processes to take control of e-discovery. The Big Data Track of education, Sponsored by Recommind, focuses on the evolution of the legal technology playing field. Back in 2012, Predictive Coding was the talk of the industry. Now in 2014 we are asking if it Predictive Coding is dead. The industry has evolved and technology is driving the pace. Examine how Information Governance is now becoming Predictive Governance. To be on the cutting edge of technology, you often have to see what your systems can really do for you. Learn how to use Predictive Coding to solve the ever present issue of email management and position your organization for the legal market of tomorrow. Pick your favorite technology and strip away the super-fast processors, memory chips, software coding and all the blinking LEDs. You quickly get to the people-focused intent behind technology. It’s true for the server in the equipment closet, the laptop on your desk, the smartphone in your pocket and every other device or system you own, especially CRM. When that purpose-built solution does not perform its primary job of managing and maintaining relationships really well, there’s a good chance the fundamental issue is people-based instead of technology. With so much riding on the business potential of your firm’s CRM solution, it’s worth exploring the symbiotic relationship between humans and their technologies to see what can be done better. The interdependencies may surprise you, and provide both practical ideas and technology enhancements you can apply to improve your own situation. Ediscovery is transforming — are you ready?
As ediscovery technologies evolve and business practices grow more efficient, ediscovery is transforming from an art—where the process is recreated within each project—to a science—where the process is predictable, reliable, and standardized. Attend these sessions to learn about the advanced technologies, insightful metrics, and innovative methods driving ediscovery toward a more consistent, repeatable business practice.

Specifically, our sessions will:

  • Discuss the interplay of humans and technology in the future of document review
  • Identify key metrics to help measure and evaluate ediscovery performance
  • Detail the emergence of multi-matter management with an interactive simulation
Brought to you in conjunction with ILTA, the Corporate Legal IT Track is designed for in-house counsel and law department managers and examines the trends and best technological practices .  See how those who are already using today’s cutting edge technologies to organize and structure their organizations are benefiting.  Hear an updated discussion on Alternative Billing and finally delve into the importance of strong relationship building within your department and with your partners. Curtailing the Costs and Risks of Discovery
The information explosion shows no sign of abating, nor does the variety of places data can be stored, from the cloud to personal devices. These are among the factors contributing to the escalating costs and risks associated with discovery. This educational track, brought to you by Huron Legal, focuses on the opportunities and challenges law departments face in managing these costs and risks. The first session will focus on finding the best mix of resources and technology to handle your discovery challenges, whether inside your department or from outside counsel and other service providers. The second session will dispel some of the recurring myths associated with the costs and risks of outsourcing. Finally, the third session will examine emerging discovery challenges related to data in the cloud, in social media, on personal devices, or wherever will come next – challenges involving not only obtaining and producing information cost effectively, but also protecting the company’s proprietary information from cybersecurity threats and other dissemination, avoiding privacy violations, and otherwise navigating the minefield of associated risks
Evolving client expectations and a more competitive legal marketplace are demanding that everyone from solo practitioners to large law firm lawyers be more responsive, both in the office and on the go. This track will give practical, real-world insights on choosing—and using—the right practice management techniques and tools to delight your clients, add to your bottom line and help better manage your practice. In today's environment, firms must stay competitive and profitable. Law firms that innovatively integrate technology into all aspects of their daily operations are setting a new bar of efficiency and preparedness. This track focuses on leveraging and utilizing legal technology to the benefit to your firm
