Risks & Responsibilities: The Ethics of Legal Holds

Do you know your legal ethical duty when it comes to properly preserving information in the event of an actual or anticipated litigation, regulatory investigation or other legal event? This popular program incorporates FRCP and ABA Model Rules, court rulings addressing legal hold practices, including decisions outlining attorney obligations regarding legal holds and potential ethical pitfalls, and how to create a successful legal hold process that is clear, comprehensive and correct.
Worth 1 CLE ethics credit.

Preventing Wasted Costs in eDiscovery

Ever feel like eDiscovery isn’t as efficient or cost-effective as it could be? Outdated practices, inefficient workflows, old technologies and general knowledge gaps can quickly and vastly increase the costs of eDiscovery. Learn about best practices, workflows, new approaches and technologies and more – to help you maximize the eDiscovery process, strengthen the relationship between attorney and client, and bolster your bottom line.
Worth 1 CLE credit.

Data Theft By Departing Employees: A Bigger Threat Than Hackers

87% of employees who leave a job take data with them – including corporate presentations, strategy documents and intellectual property – and most take it with the intent to share it – sometimes with a competitor or to start a competing business. This seminar will share best practices not only to seek out these culprits after they’ve left and find evidence of theft, but also to prevent the information from leaving in the first place. This seminar will help you learn how to keep your client’s or company’s data in safe hands.
Worth 1 CLE credit.

Hot Topics in eDiscovery

From social media to chat applications to the cloud to the Internet of Things (IoT), this seminar will help you understand the multiple kinds of data you can collect and how to work with it for a legal matter or investigation. We will also discuss BYOD policies and how to work with data that may be on a personal device. The eDiscovery process today involves much more than traditional files and emails that are found only on servers and computers. Be knowledgeable and prepared to work with any kind of file.
Worth .75 CLE credits and .25 ethics credits.

Ask-the-Experts Panel

This is your chance to ask a panel of eDiscovery and Digital Forensics experts all the eDiscovery and computer forensics questions you have wondered about for years. From social media to the latest in artificial intelligence and more, the panel is prepared to address any question you may have.
