Join us for a 4-part webinar series designed to help you understand and improve your e-discovery practices and modernize your ESI protocols

About this event

Have you been using the same ESI Protocols for the past three years?

Have you been meaning to update it but haven’t yet?

Do you feel uncertain about how to include some of the modern sources of discovery?

Legal discovery has changed significantly in the past few years. The protocol you have been using may open the door to significant cost and admissibility issues that you are not anticipating. Join the Midwest Chapters of ACEDS for a special 4-part series designed to provide tales from the trenches, discussion from experts and judges, and then pull it all together with a working session to help you confidently implement updates and changes at your organization.

Leap forward with us on February 29 (Leap Day!) at 12:00 CT for a lively discussion from two practitioners, Angela Shapiro (Shareholder, Butzel Long) and Doug Matthews (Partner, Vorys) for a lively discussion of tales from the trenches and how ESI Protocols have impacted their cases!
