LegalTech 2008

Legal Tech 2008  starts today in New York City and looks to be not only an opportunity to meet and assess vendors of e-discovery and related information technology services but also a veritable clearinghouse of helpful information on e-discovery issues.  The schedule this year includes several interesting - and, doubtless, highly informative - panel presentations on key legal and technological issues relevant to e-discovery, including:

  • best practices for data storage, retention, identification, retrieval and review;
  • privilege issues particular to electronically-stored information;
  • issues implicated by offshore outsourcing of ESI review, including international ediscovery rules and standards;
  • readiness and strategic planning;
  • choosing an e-discovery platform;
  • cost management; and
  • particular evidentiary issues raised by ESI.

If you can't make New York in February (brrrrr), Legal Tech arrives in Los Angeles June 26-27, 2008.
