This year has definitely thrown a wrench into the works when it comes to the usual industry events we’re used to attending. Everyone adjusted to virtual gatherings and made the best of it (we’re all in this together, right?) but it wasn’t quite the same. But one thing that is consistent in 2020 is eDiscovery Day!

Now in its 6th year, eDiscovery Day has always been an industry event where everyone can participate, no matter their location. The vendor-agnostic event is the brainchild of eDiscovery thought-leader and Exterro Sr. Managing Director of Marketing, Mike Hamilton. According to the eDiscovery Day website, “eDiscovery Day is one of the largest nationwide gatherings of legal professionals. It’s a day that allows us to celebrate the increasingly important role we play as attorneys, litigators, e-discovery specialists, paralegals and in-house counsel in the Legal GRC space.” This year boasts 31 supporters, 20 downloadable resources, 11 webcasts, and 7 virtual events, all in a single day, which is December 3rd this year.

And speaking of webcasts, Ipro and ACEDS are hosting a webinar at 2pm ET:  A Year of Transition for eDiscovery: What We Learned in 2020

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, law firms, corporate legal teams, ALSPs, and the courts have all had to make adjustments. As we come to the end of the year, it’s important to consider how these changes will affect the industry for 2021 and beyond.

I’ll be hosting the webinar on behalf of Ipro and talking with industry leaders Brad Blickstein and Michael Quartararo discuss the past year and what may lie ahead.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • The effect of remote work on the legal industry
  • Significant Rulings and Laws in 2020
  • Changes to eDiscovery Workflow / Technology
  • How to Prepare for 2021

.So on December 3rd, be sure to take part in all the great events going on and celebrate our industry in the process. It has definitely been a year to remember, for better or worse, and we all deserve a little celebration.
