Mark you calendars for a PAABA-sponsored program covering eDiscovery, digital evidence, and international privacy law.

eDiscoveryand privacy law are top concerns around the country among in-house attorneys and the information technology professionals that work with them.  Also, California’s new Electronic Discovery Act will bring sweeping changes to litigation in the state courts, just as the 2006 amendments to the federal rules changed federal practice.  Watch attorneys in action arguing a cutting-edge eDiscovery dispute, learn about working with computer forensic experts, and learn how to collaborate with your clients’ information technology staff for effective eDiscovery responses and requests.  Hear the latest updates on international privacy law.

Our Legal Track program will include keynotes on data protection and four panels:

  • Mock hearing on digital evidence spoliation and eDiscovery issues before Judge Richard Kramer, SF Superior Court
  • Top Computer Forensics Do’s and Don’ts when conducting investigations and eDiscovery
  • International privacy law update (including developments from the EU and Asia)
  • Effective collaboration among outside counsel, inside counsel, and information technology staff members for effective eDiscovery and evidence presentation
