2018 Advanced eDiscovery Institute


November 15, 2018 | 8:00 am – 4:00 pm ET | Washington, DC, US

David Kessler (New York), our US head of data and information risk, will moderate a panel at the Georgetown Advanced E-Discovery Institute conference (AEDI) in Washington, DC, November 15.

He will lead a discussion about the transfer of data during discovery in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation, which went into effect in May and provides data protection and privacy controls to individuals in the European Union.

The AEDI has gained a reputation among judges, practitioners and vendors as the leading eDiscovery conference in the United States. Now in its fifteenth year, this program, planned by a national advisory board, gives attendees access to more federal judges than any similar program and provides the opportunity to learn at an advanced level from the nation's leading eDiscovery practitioners and academics.

The conference offers a combination of plenary sessions and targeted breakout sessions during which attendees learn about the latest case law, trends in all aspects of eDiscovery, and judicial and practitioner perspectives on where eDiscovery is heading in the next few years.
