The Expanding World of E-Discovery: A Look at the Convergence of E-Discovery, Privacy, and Forensics

ESI Protocols: To Be or Not To Be and What to Include

The debate rages on about the value of ESI Protocols, whether to have one, or how complicated they really need to be to meet the parties’ needs, as well as how courts are viewing them. Join us for a lively discussion on real-world examples of when to use (and not use) a protocol, and the key elements to incorporate to benefit the parties and keep discovery moving forward (and off the judge’s calendar). We’ll discuss language issues in drafting and what the courts want to see from parties.

  • Kelly Twigger - CEO and Founder at eDiscovery Assistant and Principal at ESI Attorneys
  • Judge Allison Goddard - U.S. Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of California
  • Maria Salacuse, Assistant General Counsel for Technology at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) Office of General Counsel

Where is Generative AI on E-Discovery Day?

Generative AI has dominated the news cycle in 2023: from breathless claims about everything it can and will do, to fears it will annihilate humanity. We’ve seen colossal blunders on the part of attorneys who used GenAI to prepare court submissions and misguided responses from some courts. As we draft this description in the early Fall, it is almost impossible to predict where we will be on December 7. This panel will address both current technical and legal developments and challenges of GenAI from the perspective of computer scientists, lawyers, and judges.
