Technology in Practice is a large event dedicated to eDiscovery and related topics. It is run by Ricoh and by Commonwealth Legal, and takes place in Toronto between 8 and 10 November.
Tomorrow, 18 October, I will be taking over the Twitter accounts of @RicohLegal and CL_Legal in order to promote this event. Its agenda is here and the aim of the Twitter Takeover is to encourage people to ask questions about it.
I am enthusiastic about Technology in Practice not least because I have two interesting panels to moderate, one on technology-assisted review with Judge Peck and Maura Grossman, and one on changes in rules relating to discovery in the company of Judge Peck and Justice Myers of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. I have written about these panels here.
There is plenty else to catch the eye in the agenda. Karyn Harty and Thomas Connor of McCann FitzGerald get us started with a session called The Future is Now and subtitled From Fountain pens to automated expertise. McCann FitzGerald is a firm which I refer to frequently as a model for those who seek to expand their practice by applying technology and related skills to matters beyond eDiscovery.
Mary Mack of ACEDS is leading several sessions. Ian Campbell of iCONECT will talk about the use of analytics to tell stories from data, and there is a Relativity session called Analytics for Lawyers .
As well as these and other panels on the wider eDiscovery context, there is a stream called In the Trenches which aims to give practical advice on the management of eDiscovery.
Please do join me tomorrow from 1.00-2.00pm EST with any questions you may have about Technology in Practice and the subjects covered in it.
