Electronic Discovery for the Small and Medium Case
2nd Annual Electronic Discovery Conference: March 14, 2014
“Letting Data Tell the Winning Litigation Story”
The University of Florida E-Discovery/EDRM Conference for the Small and Medium Case this year focuses on letting your data tell the winning litigation story. E-discovery is more than responding to production requests. At its heart, e-discovery is locating, parsing, and restructuring the voluminous and diverse case data – emails, texts, word processing docs, social media postings and messages, databases, digital photos, browsing history, computer logs, and more – into a coherent, winning story.
Join our distinguished panels of national expert e-discovery practitioners and lawyers as they demonstrate with readily available, inexpensive e-discovery software how you can discover your winning case.
