Although we will be looking at the new discovery rule, the focus is much more on the practical aspects of dealing with electronic documents and data in any context, and on the feedback from judges gleaned when Integreon’s Vince Neicho spoke at the Judicial College.
There will also be a demonstration of Brainspace, showing how visual analytics plays a part in preparing to give (or receive) discovery / disclosure in any context.
Our aim is to bring together the problems and the solutions, to look at what is new and what is not, and to suggest how a good understanding of technology enables the required discussions with the other side and with the court.
I will be the moderator and will encourage audience participation and questions while still getting through our agenda.
I gave a talk in Bristol about 10 years ago aimed primarily at the barristers who had invited me there. One conversation sticks in my mind: there was no point in understanding electronic discovery, I was told, because “any work involving large volumes of documents goes to London anyway”. Much has changed since then, both in Bristol’s importance as a disputes centre and in the requirements of the rules. The ability to manage electronic documents efficiently and economically cannot be considered optional in cases of any size. Come and join in the discussion.
