The film charts the 10 year journey of a group of judges, lawyers, and scientists. It's a film about the changing role of an attorney, the right to learn the truth from your adversary, and the right to learn the truth from your government.
Prague, Czech Republic (PRWEB UK) 23 September 2014
"The Decade of Discovery" is a historical documentary of events that took place from 2002-2012. It’s the story of a government attorney (LTEC2014's Day 2 Keynote Speaker Jason R. Baron) on a quest to find a better way to search White House e-mail, and a teacher who takes a stand for civil justice on the electronic frontier. INsig2 LawTech Europe Congress is honored to present this film during its conference dinner on 20 October. This enlightening film will be highly inspirational to the delegates of this annual event on electronic evidence, digital forensic investigation, cyber security, and law office technologies.
U.S. litigation has traditionally been adversarial, resulting in a reluctance to cooperate in the fact finding process. This presents an obstacle to finding the truth - especially in the new world of millions of email. "The film charts the 10 year journey of a group of judges, lawyers, and scientists," said Joe Looby, the Director of the film. "It's a film about the changing role of an attorney, the right to learn the truth from your adversary, and the right to learn the truth from your government."
The issues are even more dramatic when considered on a global scale. Cross-border disputes involve unique challenges including conflicting statutes and uncooperative countries. With the increased acceptance of electronic discovery around the world, there is great hope for cooperation in discovery.
"We are at a crucial tipping point of European mass adoption of the use of electronic evidence and cross-border information requests," said Frederick Gyebi-Ababio, Director of INisg2 LawTech Europe Congress. "This powerful film illustrates the importance of cooperation in discovery to find the truth and realize justice. Its premiere at LTEC2014 will substantially enhance the experience of our delegates."
