  • Some of the most significant changes in the history of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure relating to e-discovery may be on the horizon following the historic 2010 Conference being held at Duke Law School just two weeks before the National Institute. Our first panel will reprise the potential changes in e-discovery rules and the dramatic impact they may have.
  • U.S. District Court Judge Scheindlin has shaken up the litigation world again with her decision in Pension Committee and will participate interactive discussion of what may become the next most-cited e-discovery opinion since Zubulake.
  • You may conduct great e-discovery but it won’t do you any good if you can’t get e-documents into evidence. Learn how from U.S. District Court Judge Grimm, the author of the leading opinion on the subject.
  • “Marginal utility” is one of the most famous phrases in e-discovery. U.S. District Court Judge Facciola, who coined the phrase, will reflect on the role “proportionality” can play in controlling e-discovery costs, among other key subjects.
  • Everyone wants to bring down search costs. Our panel, led by the Director of Litigation for the National Archives—who has the greatest incentive of anyone to control e-discovery costs—will bring you up to date on the most important tools available.
  • Enjoy an interactive tour through the ethics of Web 2.0 that will certainly make you change the way you use—or at least, think carefully on how to embrace—social networking sites, videosharing sites, cloud computing, and internet advertising.
