Legaltech 2018, taking place next week in New York, is now part of a wider set of events called Legalweek.
I have for some years taken part in a Corporate Counsel Roundtable organised by William Belt, now at CDS, as co-moderator of the judicial panels which are always part of the programme. The combination of the judges and senior people from the legal departments of major corporations always makes for an interesting session.
Corporate Counsel Roundtable 2018 takes place on Monday 29 January and attendance is limited to corporate eDiscovery professionals, both lawyers and non-lawyers. It includes an eDiscovery case law update, various topics chosen by regular attendees, and a Rules update two years on from the last amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
My own involvement is in the closing panel, a Q&A session with Judges Andrew Peck, Jay Francis and Frank Maas. The moderators are William Belt, Ann McCray of McGuire Woods, and me.
The topics will spring off various significant cases. My own section is about the Microsoft Dublin case and the issues it raises in respect of US discovery reach into foreign jurisdictions.
There are also events on Tuesday and Wednesday under the general title Putting Insights into Practice which is open to law firm and corporate delegates.
