Conference Recap – “Hot Topics in E-Discovery”

Attendees of “Hot Topics in E-Discovery,” an advanced E-Discovery conference hosted by Suffolk University Law School, gained invaluable insight on Friday, as a panel of four National E-Discovery attorneys and two Massachusetts judges addressed a wide range of issues relating to technology and the law. The format was lively and engaging, and included a Mock Rule 26 role playing exercise, reviews of recent social media and preservation case law, and several opportunities for the panelists to field questions from the audience.

    The blog takes a clever approach to [e-discovery]. Each post discusses an e-discovery case that involves an e-discovery mishap, generally by a company employee. It discusses the conduct that constituted the mishap and then offers its ‘e-lesson’ — a suggestion on how to learn from the mistake and avoid it happening to you.
