Events / Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Noon-1 p.m. EDT

Please join BakerHostetler and Georgetown Law CLE for this webinar on a key issue in e-discovery. Changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were intended to reduce the costs, burdens and uncertainty of electronic discovery.

But from sanctions to relevance to proportionality, there is evidence that a meaningful portion of bench and bar are unaware of the changes. This panel will cover advocacy strategies to address and head off this troubling trend.

  • Ted Jacobs, National Leader, BakerHostetler's E-Discovery Advocacy and Management team (EDAM)
  • Hon. Laurel Beeler, U.S. Magistrate Judge, Northern District of California
