Comply With State and Federal Rules and Find the Digital "Smoking Gun"

With the federal rules in place and state courts rapidly adopting and interpreting the law locally, e-discovery is here to stay. With such a tremendous inflow of information, you can spend all your nights and weekends poring over case summaries, court dockets and regulations updates. Or you can spend one day in a dynamic discussion of litigation attorneys' real-life challenges and strategies and walk away with a solid foundation for requesting, obtaining and interpreting ESI. Gain a fundamental understanding of e-discovery and its role in your practice, so you can comply with the rapidly evolving federal and state regulations and use ESI in more cases without sending the clients to the poor house.
