Track Description

Enterprise information is continuing to grow at an incredible rate, and organizations are no longer watching from the sideline. In this track learn from expert panels about Information Governance (IG) strategies, tactics, and technologies, and leave with an understanding on how IG can become a launching pad to harness the power of your information.

This track will explore how the latest advancements in technology, such as Behavior Informatics and Predictive Analytics serve as pivotal tools in your organization’s litigation readiness arsenal. From facilitating proactive measures by identifying behavior patterns and trends, to managing big data, to reducing liability exposure, our expert panelists will provide practical examples and key tactical information.

Sure, the practice of law is your profession, but your law practice is a business. The sessions in this track will help change the way you work, shift how you see your practice, and help you walk away with an action plan to accomplish and earn what you should by doing what you love. ​

In today’s legal landscape, the challenges of managing your firm are continually evolving. How you handled practice management, e-discovery and business development even just a few years ago can likely be improved. Exploring new methods and techniques can mean the difference in stronger client relationships, prosperity and gaining a competitive edge. This track will focus on ideas and methods for running the best firm you can.

This track addresses in-house corporate counsel’s most pressing e-discovery concerns. Experienced in-house practitioners will discuss: How information governance and e-discovery work together to optimize efficiencies and create mutual value; the evolution of predictive coding, the impact of predictive coding on other search techniques, and the increased use of statistical sampling; and strategies for tackling discovery challenges in government investigations and regulatory matters.

Every day, legal professionals are innovating new ideas and approaches to conquer emerging e-discovery challenges. Learn from these experts as they share the actionable strategies and leading-edge technology that can help you do your job faster and more effectively.

Brought to you in conjunction with ILTA, the Advanced IT track is designed to bring law firms to the cutting edge of technology. Learn about ways your law firm can better respond to security audits, find out what’s new and cool and what other first are doing with technology, and hear some successful ways to deal with change management in the law firm environment.

Expanding eDiscovery Boundaries:

The current global regulatory climate has pushed eDiscovery beyond the United States and forced
practitioners to grapple with foreign regulations, unfamiliar data formats, and culture differences. These
challenges present new opportunities for companies and practitioners to develop global approaches to
eDiscovery that is adaptable to this rapidly evolving regulatory environment.
Join us for a program with international thought leaders and practitioners who will detail practical and
tested approaches to survive in this brave new eDiscovery world. The first session outlines
methodologies for handling new structured data formats, including the use of analytics and other technologies to find the right needles in the digital haystacks. The second session discusses how to
navigate today’s international regulatory waters and the challenges involved in minimizing enterprise risk
and establishing effective compliance programs. The third session details elements of an effective and
consistent global eDiscovery program.
