Here is a conference worth considering: The first-ever Innovate Conference brings together a who’s who of speakers to explore various aspects of technology and the law, including e-discovery, information security, privacy and social media. The two-day conference, which will be held Oct. 17 and 18 in Winter Park, Fla., is presented by IT-Lex, a not-for profit organization committed to bridging the gap between technology and the law.
- “Predicting Predictive Coding,” in which noted e-discovery professionals Jason Baron, Maura Grossman and Ralph Losey discuss the future of predictive coding.
- “E-Discovery and Due Process,” in which U.S. Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola, retired U.S. Magistrate Judge Nan R. Nolan, Anthony Mendenhall and Kenneth J. Withers will discuss whether the producer-pays system of discovery in the U.S. violates procedural due process.
- “Clawbacks, Cooperation, and Competence,” in which Judges Facciola and Nolan join Ralph C. Losey, Tom O’Connor and Florida Magistrate Lawrence H. Kolin to offer pointers on on clawbacks and cooperation.
Other panels will cover topics such as “Computer Science for Lawyers,” “Privacy in the Digital Age,” and “Social Media and the Law.” A judicial roundtable will feature Judges Facciola and Nolan, as well as U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul W. Grimm.
IT-Lex was founded by Adam C. Losey, a lawyer at Foley & Lardner LLP. In addition to producing this conference, which is slated to become an annual event, the organization tracks updates in technology law and will be publishing a scholarly journal, the IT-Lex Journal.
Registration for the conference is $299 or $99 for law students. You can register and obtain more information at the conference website.
