Nuix is presenting a webinar on 12 November at 9.00am PT / 12.00pm ET / 5.00pm BST called Embracing proportionality in the age of big data.
It is sometimes hard to detect this, but proportionality is a required component in US eDiscovery. The very word causes difficulty, particularly in a jurisdiction whose lawyers like bright lines and who are uneasy with a concept which, inevitably, varies with the circumstances. In England & Wales the concept causes less difficulty, though its execution often falls short of the expectations of those who carefully inserted the word into the overriding objective.
As the promotional material for this Nuix webinar says “The concept of proportionality in eDiscovery is akin to the concept of goodness. We all know what it is the promised benefits could deliver, but few know how to embody it into their discovery practices.”
The webinar is to be given by U.S. Magistrate Judge James Francis, Eric Mandel of Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason LLP, Craig Ball, Attorney and Forensic Technologist and Certified Computer Forensic Examiner, and Roxanna Prelo Friedrich, Esq., Director, Client Services at Nuix.
