Share this article

Real litigators and trial attorneys conduct electronic discovery—and they do it happily. But what is e-discovery, exactly? The free and virtual 9th Annual University of Florida E-Discovery Conference is a superb opportunity for law students and lawyers who are inexperienced in e-discovery to introduce themselves to the “joy of e-discovery.”

Why choose the UF Law Conference as your vehicle to understand this industry and its many career paths?

First, this two-day conference is practical. Experts from around the nation and, indeed, the world, will show how and when they deploy their e-discovery skills. The Conference will show you how and why attorneys conduct e-discovery, the benefits of understanding the EDRM and the processes, and technologies and solutions that can help mitigate risk and decrease litigation costs. For law students, they will see how lawyers and legal professionals put e-discovery into action.

Second, the conference will show that e-discovery is fun–it is not the drudgery of reviewing boxes of paper documents in a poorly lit and poorly ventilated basement. Litigators and trial attorneys use e-discovery (think, “evidence”) at every stage of the litigation process. Nothing beats doing a job well. Nothing beats knowing more than the opposition. Nothing beats feeling in control. Nothing beats getting superlative results for your clients. Real lawyers find joy in e-discovery. No kidding.

At the UF Law E-Discovery Conference, you’ll experience this contagious enthusiasm for advancing the causes of clients while making the litigation process work well and effectively. E-discovery provides access to justice. The Conference speakers are on a mission to demonstrate that e-discovery makes all the difference for litigation. At the conference, you can ask questions, chat with fellow conference attendees and the speakers, and learn about a full range of e-discovery activities. Assessing your case right out of the box, meeting with the Court to set the discovery schedule, preparing for depositions, analyzing the data from the opposition. Plus, seeing the nifty tools available on the legal market. How cool is it to have software that sparks late night highly animated conversations about a key topic in the case? E-discovery makes litigation heroes.

Want to understand the work and career choices in this exciting industry? The answer is the University of Florida Levin College of Law E-Discovery conference on March 23rd and 24th – begin your journey of enjoying and benefiting from e-discovery.
