The increasing importance of privacy and security in today's business world, coupled with the advancement and acceptance of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, mean today's legal professional is behind the proverbial power curve without a basic understanding of emerging cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. As they are rapidly moving from proof-of-concept projects to formal systems of record, it's only a matter of time until almost anyone involved in the business of law or the law of business is confronted with a situation involving these highly publicized technologies.
This expert presentation from one of eDiscovery's foremost digital forensics experts, John Wilson, will highlight both blockchains and cryptocurrencies to arm attendees with essential information that will help them understand how these technologies are changing the landscape of business and law.
Key Topics Include:
Why Cryptocurrencies Have Value
How Cryptocurrencies Work
Why Blockchain Is a Foundational Technology
How Blockchain Works
Use Cases for Blockchain as a Legal Technology
eDiscovery Considerations for Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain

Please join us for our next chapter meeting and receive CLE credit, too! FTI will present “Learning from Mistakes in Document Review.” It usually isn’t practical for a subject matter expert to review the thousands of documents that can come up in discovery. When teams of attorneys begin a document review, reasonable minds may make different decisions about the documents that they’re reading. By planning for these “mistakes” and structuring a team to anticipate these different interpretations, a defensible and consistent review can make life easier down the road.
Attend this CLE session to learn:
• The most common mistakes made when trying to get multiple attorneys to agree on anything;
• How to implement a quality control workflow that isn’t simply a re-review; and
• How to use technologies to identify mistakes that nobody knew were mistakes.
FTI is also sponsoring lunch. Please remember to bring photo I.D. to pass through building security.
