Track Descriptions Any lawyer or legal department involved in litigation needs to have the latest developments regarding E-Discovery at his/her disposal. This educational track showcases the latest issues impacting E-Discovery today including mobile EDD, the application of innovative technologies such as computational linguistics and the challenges posed by data generated in today’s social and digital ecosystem. Working with large data sets presents an enormous challenge to lawyers and other legal professionals. Whether you are part of a large firm or small corporate department, you simply cannot afford to not have access to tools and strategies that will enable you to create more value from, prioritize and better understand these vast amounts of information. Join us for a series of informative, interactive discussions focused on timely topics such as: applying TAR tools and predictive analytics to your information governance program; the intersection of data privacy/security with E-Discovery and information governance in the context of business transactions; and solutions for managing legacy data.

Brought to you in conjunction with ILTA, the Advanced IT track is designed to bring law firms to the cutting edge of technology.  Get involved in the conversation and examine the results of ILTA’s Tech Survey, including the good decisions law firms are making with regards to technology and how you can mirror their success; key findings and critical imperatives coming out of ILTA’s Legal Technology Future Horizons Research Project, and successful ways to deal with change management. 

From Wall Street to Main Street, technology is changing the practice of law — streamlining routine tasks and providing faster, better and more transparent service to clients. But small firm lawyers continue to face conundrums — how can they build firms that will serve their clients well, yet be affordable — and profitable. Meet innovators who are disrupting the status quo and redefining small firm law practice. A recent survey of General Counsel at 88 major companies suggests that GCs are increasingly willing to move high-stakes work away from pedigreed big law to small and mid-size firms and that many are using social media tools to vet their credentials. In today’s world of giant mega firms, how have so many smaller firms been able to use technology to disrupt the traditional client development model? From social media, to branded content and blogs, CRM technologies and more robust web sites, the tools required to develop business in the today’s business climate are completely different than a generation ago. This track enables attendees to harness the power of technology for a deep dive into client development strategies and real-world, working examples of successful firms .
