On Monday, September 19, 2011, Sedona Canada, the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Ontario Bar Association, the Advocates Society and the Ontario e-Discovery Implementation Committee collaborated to present “The Ontario e-Discovery Institute: e-Discovery for All Cases and All Lawyers” in Toronto, Ontario. Reported to be the largest e-discovery conference in North America, over 610 people attended in person or by live webinar. It was a very diverse audience from across the country, illustrating a very real interest in all things e-discovery.
Susan Wortzman and Susan Nickle participated on panels on “e-Discovery Negligence” and “Cost Containment and e-Discovery”, respectively. Other panels featured Canadian and American judges and masters, members of the Bar from across Canada and the United States, vendors and litigation support professionals. This multi-perspective approach led to interesting and spirited discussions about privacy, cost-containment, emerging technologies, and other topical e-discovery issues.
Stay tuned to our blog as we feature some of these issues in upcoming posts!
