This year’s conference, “Letting Data Tell the Winning Litigation Story,” will focus on how to locate, parse and restructure voluminous and diverse case data – ranging from text documents to text messages to tweets to social media postings – into a coherent, winning story.

The conference will feature a distinguished panel of national e-discovery expert practitioners who will demonstrate with readily available, inexpensive e-discovery software how to build a winning case story. The conference is offered in-person for $199 and online for $99. For complete registration information and a list of conference presenters, visit the E-Discovery Conference website. The conference is free to University of Florida students and professional staff.

“This year’s conference takes e-discovery to the next level for attorneys in the field; e-discovery is not just about the data, but how to use it effectively to find, build, and tell your case narrative,” said William Hamilton, the E-Discovery Projects Executive Director.

The conference is part of UF Law’s E-Discovery Project, and is underwritten by the International Center for Automated Information Research, a University of Florida foundation established to promote innovation in information technology. Attendees will be eligible to receive eight CLE credits.

The UF Law E-Discovery Project is a multidisciplinary endeavor to support the civil litigation process through electronic discovery law courses, research, the development of information retrieval methods and tools, and skills training to practicing attorneys and litigation-support professionals.
