The UF Law E-Discovery Project is a multidisciplinary endeavor to support the civil litigation process through electronic discovery law courses, research, the development of information retrieval method and tools, and offering electronic discovery skills training for practicing attorneys and litigation support professionals through public conferences and continuing legal educational offerings. The UF Law E-Discovery Project is supported by generous contributions from ICAIR, The International Center for Automated Research at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.
On January 20, 2015, the UF College of Law hosted a screening of The Decade of Discovery; a documentary of events that took place at The White House and in U.S. Courts (circa. 2002-2012). The screening featured the film’s director and principle cast members, Joe Looby, US Magistrate Judge John Facciola, former Director of Litigation for the National Archives and Drinker Biddle partner Jason R. Baron, and University of Maryland computer scientist Doug Oard.
Afterwards, a distinguished panel discussion took place. View the webcast of the discussion.
The movie is available on Vimeo from 10th Mountain Films for $9.99, if you would like to enjoy it in conjunction with the panel discussion.
The ICAIR E-Discovery Project Speakers Series brings distinguished e-discovery professionals to the University of Florida campus speak on the latest trends in e-discovery and to meet with UF law students to discuss e-discovery career paths.
