CDS Web Sessions Discuss Proposed Amendments to the FRCP (April 2nd) and Custodial Self Collection During eDiscovery (April 8th)

Complete Discovery Source (CDS/CDS Legal), the leader in eDiscovery, announced open registration for two upcoming April 2014 webinars:


Webinar – The Proposed Amendments to the FRCP: Will They Mark an eDiscovery Sea Change?
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 – 2:00pm Eastern; Duration: 1 Hour Hosted by CDS and Carahsoft

In August, the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Judicial Conference of the United States disseminated several proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy and Civil Procedure for public comment. The proposals represent the most substantial set of changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure related to discovery since the 2006 amendments, and could have far reaching impacts on the modern practice of law. A mountain of public commentary has been submitted, public hearings have been held, and, if approved, these amendments would become effective on December 1, 2015.

Join Matthew Knouff, eDiscovery Counsel for Complete Discovery Source, as he moderates a discussion with the Honorable Judge David Waxse, Retired U.S. Magistrate Judge from the District of Kansas, Monica McCarroll, Partner at Williams Mullen, and Steven Bennett, Partner at Park Jensen Bennett LLP, to discuss how these changes could affect the various corners of the legal industry: plaintiff, defense, in-house, and the public-sector.

The panel will discuss several aspects of the amendments including the landscape that precipitated the changes; the Amendment Debate: The concerns and advantages of the amendments; What do these amendments mean for you as a practitioner?; What are the practical implications?; What should you be doing to prepare in case the amendments are approved?; And Whether or not the proposed amendments go far enough to address discovery challenges presented by the Digital Age?
