Answer Bar: Technology for Litigators (Contains material from Aug 2016 to Dec 2018)

Session 1: Artificial Intelligence and its Effect on the Legal Industry - AI is getting a lot of attention, creating fears and in many cases unrealistic expectations. Explore the reality of AI, how it practically can impact legal work flows, and how it can be a positive force that enables lawyers to do their jobs faster, cheaper and better for their clients. Session 2: Strategic Use of E-Discovery - Fewer than one out of a hundred cases are tried. Accordingly, discovery strategy is often more vital than trial strategy. Yet, strategic use of e-discovery garners little attention, perhaps because the fundamentals demand so much focus that there is little room for flourishes. If you only know one way of doing things, how do you act strategically? Review methods to deploy e-discovery strategically, mindful of our opponent’s fears, goals, and pain points … as well as our own. Session 3: eDiscovery for Every Case – Even the Small Ones! - From the largest class actions to small individual claims, almost all litigation matters touch on some form of electronic discovery. Learn about key issues related to preservation, collection, processing, and review of electronically stored evidence, along with some of the latest tools and technology that can help you make the most of your time and resources regardless of case size. Session 4: Authentication of Electronic Evidence - Learn how to authenticate electronic evidence without having to rely on an expert. Session 5: Hearsay in a Digital World - Review important hearsay issues, with an emphasis on hearsay appearing in social media, texts, and other new media. Session 6: Getting from Internet to Evidence - Social media can be a goldmine in certain cases, if you can discover relevant data and get it into evidence. Learn ethical methods of eDiscovery related to social media, the nuts and bolts of admitting social media data into evidence, and strategies for using that evidence on both liability and damages claims. Session 7: Social Media and Homeowners Insurance: Are Your Facebook Posts Covered? - Litigation stemming from social media activities has exploded in recent years. While the defendants in these cases often look to their homeowners insurance for protection, the typical policy gives insurers multiple ways out. Session 8: Data Security Breach Litigation - Review what a litigator needs in order to prepare a client for litigation or an investigation by regulators after a data security breach. Takeaways include protocol for preserving the attorney client privilege and evidence before, during and after a breach; cybersecurity liability insurance litigation updates; and creating proof points, including a discussion of cybersecurity best practices and "cybersecurity basics," to effectively minimize damages, fines and penalties. Session 9: Law Firm Data Security and the Ethical Duty of Technology Competence - As clients demand attorneys deliver legal services more efficiently by using technology it increases pressure to have technical knowledge and proficiency. Further, the American Bar Association and 28 states have created a model rule for the ethical duty of technology competence. Hear an overview of the significant material risks and impact on a law firm following a breach and the potential consequences from an ethics and disciplinary perspective. more »
