Announcing the Second Annual Educational Summit for State Court Judges: Unlocking E-Discovery

Brittany Kauffman Posted in Featured, Rule One

This September, IAALS and the National Judicial College will host an educational summit exclusively tailored for state court judges on all facets of the discovery of electronically stored information (ESI)—from preservation to production to eventual use at trial. The Summit will feature nationally renowned speakers and will provide both a core of basic training for judges on e-discovery and in-depth and interactive discussions on the more complex issues facing judges in state courts across the nation.

Why an e-discovery conference devoted just to state court judges? The creation and discovery of ESI has become more and more prevalent in state court litigation. What began as a big-case phenomenon now has the promise of being an every-case phenomenon. While e-discovery continues to pose challenges for the civil justice system, and for individual courts, the judge who understands e-discovery may be uniquely positioned to guide the litigation in a way that works better for all litigants—and for the court itself.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the ACTL Foundation for this event and invite state court judges from around the country to join us on September 19-20, 2013 in Denver, Colorado.
