Judge's E-Discovery and Dispute Resolution Training

2014 Dates TBA

Dear Judges,

Please note that the Dispute Resolution Program of Loyola University Chicago School of Law will again be providing a free training just for judges by the American College of E-Neutrals the evening before our Advanced Mediator E-Discovery Training this spring.  This will be an informal gathering, and discussion is encouraged:

Event Name:  Judge's E-Discovery and Dispute Resolution Training

The training is specifically designed to discuss conflict resolution from the bench's perspective relating to e-discovery issues.  The training includes the latest topics and trends in e-discovery facing courts, litigants and neutrals:

Technology Assisted Review (TAR):    What is it?  When should it be allowed in a case?

Proportionality:     When and how to define it in a case?

Accessibility:     When is ESI not reasonably accessible?  Who should pay for making ESI accessible?

Cloud Computing:   What are the jurisdictional and ethical concerns?

Social Media Evidence:    It's everywhere, but when and to what extent should it be discovered?

Authentication:      Is the ESI trustworthy and reliable?

Proposed Amendments to the e-Discovery Amendments    What changes are coming and why?

The American College of e-Neutral Instructors are Peter S. Vogel of Gardere, Wynne & Sewell LLP and Adjunct Professor of eCommerce Law and E-Discovery at SMU Dedman School of Law and Allison O. Skinner of Skinner Neutral Services LLC and Adjunct Professor of E-discovery at the University of Alabama School of Law.   We hope you will join us!

To register please email Sara Stretch, Administrative Fellow, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, Dispute Resolution Program at sstretch@luc.edu.

 Please forward this to any state or federal judges who you think may have an interest in this area.

Thank you.
