A Relativity Legal Education Webinar for CLE Credit brought to you by the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS)

He’s back on the bench! Join us for a mock e-discovery hearing on technology assisted review (TAR) where the Honorable Andrew J. Peck, Senior Counsel at DLA Piper and retired United States Magistrate Judge, will be presiding. Alicia Hawley, Discovery Counsel and Chair of the eDiscovery and Litigation Services Group at Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP will face-off against David Horrigan, Discovery Counsel and Legal Education Director at Relativity. They’ll debate the vital TAR issues of the day, and Judge Peck will opine on the arguments. We’ll also examine the jurisprudence of TAR, including Alicia Hawley’s recent work in Livingston v. City of Chicago and Judge Peck’s TAR decisions, including Da Silva Moore v. Publicis Groupe, Rio Tinto PLC v. Vale S.A., and Hyles v. City of New York. Join us to get your CLE credit, and have some substantive fun while you’re doing it.
