2022 Data Discovery Mid-Year Legal Update

A Relativity Continuing Legal Education Webinar in association with

The Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS)

July 26, 2022
12:00 PM US Central 1700 Ireland

The first half of 2022 has been another active period in the law of data discovery. In April, European Parliament committees issued their draft report on the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act (Regulation) for the European Union, while international data issues, proportionality in e-discovery, and questions of access to justice have been important topics as well.

Join us for a Relativity Legal Education tradition, the Data Discovery Mid-Year Legal Update, as we analyze case law on these issues, the latest on e-discovery, and other legal developments since the beginning of the year.

We’ll be welcoming leading legal commentators: the legendary retired judge, the Honorable Andrew Peck of DLA Piper; the attorney who obtained the first legal approval of technology-assisted review outside the United States, Karyn Harty, partner at Ireland’s McCann FitzGerald, and Kelly Twigger, principal of ESI Attorneys and CEO of eDiscovery Assistant, in a free CLE webinar moderated by Relativity discovery counsel and legal education director David Horrigan.
