The topic for May is: E-Discovery and the Ethical Duties of Competence, Supervision and Confidentiality
Courts and bar associations across the country have recognized that in order to satisfy the ethical duty of competence, supervision and confidentiality, attorneys involved in litigation must have a sufficient understanding of legal technology, in particular, the recurring issues that arise in electronic discovery. Counsel must be able to advise their clients and engage their adversaries effectively concerning the preservation, collection, processing and review of electronically stored information. In this CLE program, a panel of experienced litigators and e-discovery professionals will discuss how these duties of professional responsibility manifest in the context of e-discovery, review the fundamentals of electronic discovery and address measures that practitioners can take to control the costs and burdens involved.
Our speakers are Daniel S. Meyers, Esq., President, Consulting & Information Governance , TransPerfect Legal Solutions and Jackie Michalek, Director, Project Management, TransPerfect Legal Solutions
