DUKE EDRM Releases Agenda for 2018 Workshop, May 23-25 at Duke University

Workshop to Focus on TAR and GDPR Projects and Introduce New Initiatives in Electronic Discovery

Durham, NC – April 5, 2018 – Duke Law EDRM, the leading standards organization for the e-discovery market, today announced plans for the 2018 Annual EDRM Workshop, a live conference event bringing together EDRM members and experts in law and technology.

The agenda for the 2018 workshop will include updates from team leaders on the technology-assisted review (TAR) and Guidelines for the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) projects in progress.

John Rabiej, deputy director of the new Bolch Judicial Institute of Duke Law School, will share the future vision for EDRM and an update on the cooperative relationships between EDRM and the new Bolch Judicial Institute. Funded and announced in February 2018, the Bolch Judicial Institute is focused on advancing rule of law principles and raising public awareness during lapses or failures in the rule of law.

“It’s a time of extraordinary growth for EDRM,” says Rabiej. “The TAR and GDPR teams have produced guideline documents in their respective subjects that are sure to become go-to reference materials for e-discovery practitioners. The annual workshop gives us an opportunity to celebrate these accomplishments and to set the course for the coming year.”

An open discussion session at the workshop will invite participants to propose and identify new projects and build teams to address them. New topics may include, for example, a proportionality cost-benefit template/checklist, methods for creating privilege logs, privacy data and cybersecurity, discovery in mass tort MDLs or information governance models.

Who should attend?

  • All EDRM members and project team participants
  • E-discovery and information governance practitioners and experts who want to share their expertise and contribute to the advancement of e-discovery practices
  • Attorneys and litigation support professionals who want to stay abreast of e-discovery
