2017 UF Law eDiscovery Conference


2018 Agenda and Schedule for the UF E-Discovery Conference

 7:45 AM — 8:30 AM  Check-In and Breakfast in the Law School Courtyard
8:45 AM – 9:00 AM Welcome and Introductions

9:00AM – 9:50 AM Getting Data (Cheaply And Quickly) From Multiple Locations- All Of Them!

Identification, preservation, and collection are more difficult than ever.
Some courts are attuned to proportionality, but the data explosion of
mobile devices, IoT, cloud, and social media impacts your commercial,
personal injury, family law and other cases. Our panel will offer
methods and practices and battle out whether the risk and quality
concerns are worth the risk. Will Facebook Take-Outs be sufficient or is
a vendor required. Is Apple itunes a sufficient preservation and
collection vehicle for data on IOS mobile devices? Our panel will show
and tell the secrets.

Moderator: Amanda Sansone


10:00 AM – 10:50 AM Merging Your Case And Your Data: Early Analysis And Management

Electronic discovery duties and cost are front loaded, much more so than
paper. Whether you are the plaintiff or defendant, whether your case is a
commercials dispute or a mass tort, clients want early case assessment.
What is my risk of losing? Should I take this case? What is it worth?
What does my data tell me? How can I understand the important
information quickly? Join our panel to explore the tools and talents need
to get a grip on your case ASAP.

The use of TAR has flourished in the past five years since Da Silva
Moore. Where is TAR going? Will TAR really replace keyword
searching? This panel will explore when you use keywords, when to use
TAR, and when if at all the in-between is important: concept searching
and data auto-categorization.

2:00 PM – 2:50 PM Crunching Through the Data: Human Eyes-On Data Review

We can’t escape looking at the data. The best search leaves thousand,
tens of thousands, and even hundreds of thousand documents to look at.
It is the most expensive part of electronic discovery. How can you do it
without breaking the bank, understanding your data, and not producing
privileged documents. Our panel will provide 10 keys lessons from the

Like most things: what starts well ends well. E-Discovery is a disaster
