Join leading jurists, in-house counsel, outside counsel, and eDiscovery experts at Mayer Brown’s Washington, D.C. office on February 6-7, 2019, for this unique program which helps participants develop practical skills in eDiscovery negotiation. In the program, participants are trained to negotiate effectively with opposing counsel, in order to ensure efficient, cost-effective fact-finding, and avoid unnecessary disputes, consistent with Rule 1 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the ethical obligations of attorneys as officers of the court.
Participants will explore practical cooperative strategies to avoid or resolve conflicts that commonly occur in the preservation, collection, production, and use of electronically stored information.
Under the supervision of the experienced faculty, participants take part in three mock Rule 26(f) conferences focusing on scope of discovery, preservation, form of production, privilege, and social media, in both breakout sessions and plenary sessions. A faculty of veteran trial lawyers, eDiscovery experts, and judges provide an opportunity for dialogue, demonstrations, and valuable critique of the attendees' performance in the exercises, while creating an ideal environment for participants to explore practical cooperative strategies to avoid or resolve conflicts that commonly occur in the preservation, collection, production, and use of electronically stored information.
