Extract from Craig Ball’s article “Privacy: A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing?”
Next week is Georgetown Law Center’s sixteenth annual Advanced E-Discovery Institute. Sixteen years of a keen focus on e-discovery; what an impressive, improbable achievement! Admittedly, I’m biased by longtime membership on its advisory board and my sometime membership on its planning committees, but I regard the GTAEDI confab of practitioners and judges as the best e-discovery conference still standing. So, it troubles me how much of the e-discovery content of the Institute and other conferences is ceded to other topics, and one topic in particular, privacy, is being pushed to be the focus of the Institute in future.
