The webcasts feature e-discovery attorneys and educators, most prominently Ralph Losey, Esq., partner at Jackson Lewis and chair of its Electronic Discovery Practice Group; William Webber, post-doctoral research associate, iSchool, University of Maryland; and Bennett Borden, Esq., partner at Williams Mullen and co-chair of the firm's eDiscovery and Information Governance Section.
Exterro's new webcasts will address the current trends, case law and potential legal risks associated with cloud computing and predictive technologies as follows:
- Cloud Computing & E-Discovery: A Benefit & Risk Analysis
Jan 15, 2013 - 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT
Cloud computing offers significant potential to organizations looking to cost-effectively expand services and support global expansion. However, it also raises serious legal challenges, especially when an organization must identify, preserve, collect, analyze and produce electronically stored information (ESI) in legal or regulatory proceedings. Attorneys Bennett Borden, Esq., partner at Williams Mullen, and James Kunick, Esq., principal at Much Shelist, will join Joe Philipp, director of IT at LightSpeed, to examine real-world case examples and discuss how potential legal risks can be mitigated.
- ARMA Webcast: Best Practices for Leveraging Predictive Technologies
Jan 23, 2013 - 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT
Recent court rulings have given legitimacy to the use of "predictive" technologies in e-discovery. E-Discovery teams are also realizing that predictive technologies can be applied across multiple phases of the EDRM, enabling them to gain crucial intelligence about a matter much earlier in the process. In this webcast, Ralph Losey, Esq., national eDiscovery counsel at Jackson Lewis, and computer science expert William Webber, post-doctoral research associate at the e-discovery lab of the iSchool at the University of Maryland, will address concerns that have been raised about the defensibility of predictive methods and provide best practices for fully leveraging this powerful new technology.
