One Hour Amending the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) affect every aspect of legal practice; many firms, service providers and consultants base their operations on these rules of practice.

In 2010 The Federal Judicial Conference is organizing a conference of scholars, judges, litigators and clients to discuss the current state of the FRCP and empirical evidence of satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the rules. This meeting could potentially begin the process of another set of FRCP amendments. This panel will discuss the FRCP rulemaking process, how the Federal Rules are amended, the current state of the rules, and the future outlook on amendments to the Federal Rules.

If your work focuses on any aspect of the FRCP, you owe it to your clients to attend this panel.

One Hour Use of eDiscovery Technology in Federal Court: A Case Study
The presentation is based on issues in a current court case heard in US District Court, Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division. This case poses similar issues presented in the Zubulake vs. UBS Warburg case which helped to define the amendment to FRCP for ESI and eDiscovery. The issues to be discussed include: deliberate spoliation, evidence tampering, witness tampering, perjury and resignation of outside counsel. The presenters will show and discuss how technology can be used in the court room to show bad faith or negligent actions by the defense (a Fortune 600 Company).

Participants will experience an interactive role play dialog between a seasoned employment discrimination Attorney and an Information Management Consultant. Participants can expect to walk away from this session with fact and case law based examples and increased competency regarding what to do and what not to do when involved in eDiscovery related litigation.
