Following on the heels of Halloween and Freddy Krueger, the Eastern District of Wisconsin Bar Association is putting on its annual E-discovery event. On November 15, 2011, Kelly Twigger and Cristina Hernandez will join an esteemed group of presenters at the 4th Annual Electronic Discovery Conference sponsored by the EDWBA, the Milwaukee Bar Association, Marquette Law School, and AIIM Wisconsin. This day-long seminar will begin with an optional primer on e-discovery for those who need to learn the basics by Professor Jay Grenig of Marquette Law School and Matt Stippich of Digital Intelligence, a case law update highlighting the most significant decisions of the already 200 issued in 2011 by our own Cristina Hernandez, and a panel on Cost-Effective Electronic Discovery, where we will provide practical suggestions for reigning in costs, negotiating a more limited scope, and shifting costs. Professor Grenig will moderate the panel of Matt Stippich, Shawn Olley of Midwest Legal and eData Services, Kelly Centofani of Centofani Law, and yours truly.
Sessions following those include understanding the legal issues in Electronic Medical Records with Claudia Egan and John Orth, and the always popular Lunch and Learn with Magistrate Judge Aaron Goodstein and the Honorable Rick Sankovitz of Milwaukee County Circuit Court. This will be the best opportunity yet to hear how and whether Wisconsin’s new rules are being utilized and what suggestions the judges have for using them effectively to reign in costs in e-discovery. The afternoon session will consist of a Mock Meet and Confer to highlight issues under Wisconsin’s new e-discovery provisions adopted in January 2011. Presenters for the Meet and Confer include Kathy Nusslock of Davis & Kuelthau, Matt O’Neill of Fox, O’Neill & Shannon, Bruce Olson with ONLAW Trial Technologies, Doug Elrick of Digital Intelligence, and the Honorable Edward E. Leineweber of Bell, Moore & Richter.
The event will close with a networking reception from 3:30 to 4:30pm. 7.5 CLE credits are available with the primer, 6.5 without the primer.
Registration is $95, which includes lunch, reception, and the materials. To register and for more information, click here.
