Moving from Thoughtless Data Hoarding to Thoughtful Data Strategies: What’s the Answer?

 

Presented by the Business Torts Committee and Co-Sponsored by the Corporate Counsel Committee

 

Committee Roundtables are a free ABA member benefit that allow you to call in from anywhere to hear live audio programs on a host of topics


Clients, do you know what your law firm does with the data and documents it collected and created once the case is over or the engagement ends? Law firms, do you know what client data and documents you have and where they are? What steps can your organization take to make sure that dead legacy data and unmanaged live data do not become an uninsured liability? How do you dispose of useless data and documents that you have no legal obligation to keep without later being second-guessed by a litigant or a court? Join Anne Kershaw and Shannon Spangler for a discussion of the risks of over-retention, processes for defensible deletion of unneeded data, and the policies and procedures that can help your organization avoid these issues in the future.

- 11:00 a.m.

The Hilton New York Hotel, New York, NY

 

Real Life Legal Tech - Judicial, Industry, Legal, Media Perspectives on Where Legal Technology is Taking Litigation and How It Affects You

 

This panel, comprised of a noted federal judge and legal experts, including a leading industry analyst, the editor-in-chief of The National Law Journal, and a prominent e-discovery attorney, will discuss a ‘scenario’ and provide unique perspectives on the latest legal technology issues facing your legal practice, helping you avoid pitfalls along the way.

 

From social media to so-called “bring your own device” policies, technology is changing the practice of law, and the ABA has made technological proficiency an ethical requirement for attorneys. Join us as the panel discusses recent cases and controversies, and find out how evolving technologies, such as predictive coding, and legal changes, such as clawback and waiver protections for inadvertent disclosure, are taking the law and your practice in new directions at a rapid pace.

The Hilton New York Hotel, New York, NY

 

Managing the Data Abyss: Dead legacy data and unmanaged live data, how does a firm make sure that this data does not become an uninsured liability? How does a firm take “too much stuff” and translate it into a searchable, accessible and efficient resource? Is there a way to prevent ESI in the first place? Benchmark your firm’s success in this critical area and explore ideas for convincing your firm that the benefits of investing in a knowledge strategy far outweigh the costs and risks.
