Global News

Exterro logoExterro® Inc., the preferred provider of software specifically designed for in-house legal and IT teams at Global 2000 and AmLaw 200 organizations, in partnership with Above the Law, Association of E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), Bloomberg Law, BrightTALK, EDRM Duke Law, Georgetown Law CLE, Legal Technology Professionals Institute (LTPI), and University of Florida Levin College of Law today announced the initial lineup of E-Discovery Day events and webinars.

E-Discovery Day is an industry-wide, vendor neutral celebration of E-Discovery’s vital and growing role in the legal process. There are currently five educational webinars scheduled on December 1, 2017. In addition, in-person educational and networking events are scheduled in Houston, New York City, and Washington DC. Organizations interested in hosting their own events should visit the E-Discovery Day website to submit their event.

“As Rule 1 now states, both the court and the parties have a duty to use the FRCP to find a ‘just speedy and inexpensive’ way of resolving disputes. It will help us get to ‘just, speedy and inexpensive’ resolutions of litigation if more lawyers better understood e-discovery, and that is why I decided to participate in E-Discovery Day,” said Hon. David Waxse, U.S. Magistrate Judge, District of Kansas.

Speaking on the vital role of e-discovery in the legal process, Ralph Losey, Popular E-Discovery Blogger at E-DiscoveryTeam.com said, “Every lawyer is entitled to their own opinions on the law, but not to their own evidence. That is where e-discovery comes in, to find and present the truth of what really happened. Then and only then is justice possible.”

“Bloomberg Law is excited to be participating in E-Discovery Day,” said Scott Falk, Vice President and General Manager, Health Care & Litigation, Bloomberg Law.  “We have been covering E-Discovery since its emergence as a game-changer for the legal profession.  We recently underscored our commitment to advancing awareness of E-Discovery with the launch of the E-Discovery Practice Center on Bloomberg Law, which was developed to help practitioners meet their most confounding challenges.”
