I am back from LawTech Europe Congress in Prague, where I moderated two sessions. One was called Scope, Method and Budgets and addressed ways of controlling eDiscovery / eDisclosure volumes and costs in ways which are relevant in any jurisdiction. The other was about cross-border discovery, where we considered (amongst other things) whether the EU Parliament’s approval of the Draft Data Protection Regulation and the NSA revelations had made it harder than ever to take discovery data to the US. More on both of these in due course.
I also shot some video interviews to add to the growing collection here, had a lot of interesting conversations and ate extremely well.
I do not attempt to keep up with reporting the news when at conferences – that is a chance to get close to primary sources of information and to collect my own in the form of the videos, and it is a waste of good opportunities if I shut mysef away and write. I know that if I do not immediately make some notes, archive the videos, and enter the business card information, I never will, so new publishing has to wait behind all that.
I am speaking with others at a London law firm on Thursday, so it will be Friday before I start catching up with what has been going on.
