The first half of 2021 has been another exciting time for the law of data discovery.  Not only have we seen a 256-page e-discovery sanctions order, there are two data discovery cases before the United States Supreme Court.  Join us for this annual tradition as we examine important legal developments during the first half of this year.  Joining us for the analysis will be U.S. Magistrate Judge Patricia Barksdale (M.D. Fla.), Professor William Hamilton of the University of Florida Levin College of Law, and David Horrigan, Discovery Counsel and Legal Education Director at Relativity. 


Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding some of the important legal cases during the first half of 2021
  • Learning about the trends in e-discovery, including proportionality and sanctions
  • Hearing how the courts, law schools, and the industry are emerging from the pandemic.
