The Franco British Lawyers Society have organised an evening session called Searching for evidence: a panel discussion on cross-border e-Disclosure from an English and French perspective. The event takes place on Monday, 17 May at 6 pm at Pinsent Masons, 30 Aylesbury Street, London EC1R 0ER.
The speakers are:
- Mark Surguy: Legal Director at Pinsent Masons LLP.
- Caroline Jan: Solicitor at Pinsent Masons LLP.
- Claire Picard: Avocat at Salans.
- Vicky Harris: Business Development Director at Merrill Corporation.
Registration is solely via the FBLS and places are limited. The event is free and includes a drinks reception. Contact Marie-Blanche Camps by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
You might also be interested in the FBLS events programme. I see from it that I missed an event in Edinburgh called The use of modern technologies in the Scottish and French court systems. The speakers included the Unit Manager of the Electronic Service Delivery Unit ‐ Scottish Courts and the Senior Legal Adviser of the E‐Justice working group of the Council of Bars & Law Societies of Europe. Both E-Justice and the use of technology in Scottish legal practice catch my interest, and I would have promoted this talk, or even attended it, if I had known about it.
I cannot, unfortunately, attend the 17 May Anglo-French event because I will be out at an Anglo-US dinner that evening with a group of judges – e-Discovery experts all – from both sides of the Atlantic. If we merged the two events, we could probably resolve any number of multi-jurisdictional discovery problems.
