SCL, the website of the Society for Computers & Law, has kindly published my predictions for eDisclosure / eDiscovery for 2012. Every year, Editor Laurence Eastham collects predictions across a wide range of the subjects where technology meets the law, providing one of the few occasions where I am happy for an original article of mine to be first published somewhere other than on my own blog.
One year I will manage to provide them early enough for Laurence to include them in the print version of the SCL Magazine. That has been a consistent source of high-quality articles for many years, and I strongly recommend an SCL subscription to anyone with a professional interest in any aspect of legal IT – subscription information is on the SCL web site.
The current predictions are grouped together. Two of them, Discovery Divinations and Much More and Disputes and Developments, have a direct bearing on eDisclosure. The rest, between them, cover a wide range of subjects.
The same page gives links to the last two years’ predictions. It would be interesting to review them and see how accurate or otherwise we all were.
