Description: The exploding costs of e-discovery, cooperation mandates by the courts, and recommended changes (again) to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are generating a lot of discussion – by plaintiffs, defendants and the courts. Hear from representatives of The Sedona Conference®, members of Lawyers for Civil Justice and participants in the joint project of The American College of Trial Lawyers Task Force on Discovery, including Venable's Bruce Parker, and The Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System.
This premier panel will present viewpoints on:
- What’s wrong (and right) about the current e-discovery rules and legal system
- The extent to which e-discovery should be based on cooperation or advocacy
- The pros and cons of e-discovery in the U.S. compared with e-disclosure rules in the U.K.
- The role the courts and magistrate judges should be playing in addressing e-discovery issues and challenges
