Janet Bryan recently participated in The Sedona Conference Institute’s 2018 eDiscovery Negotiation Training: Practical Cooperative Strategies
The “invitation only” event was hosted at the offices of Sidley Austin LLP in New York, NY on February 22, 2018 through February 23, 2018. Through use of a litigation hypothetical, faculty demonstrations, and mock exercises, participants explored practical cooperative strategies to avoid or efficiently and cost-effectively resolve conflicts that commonly occur with electronically stored information. Under the supervision of the experienced faculty of veteran trial lawyers, eDiscovery experts, and judges, participants took part in three mock Rule 26(f) conferences focusing on scope of discovery, preservation, form of production, privilege, and social media, in both breakout sessions and plenary sessions. Janet and her teammate, who both represented the Defendant, had the honor of being chosen along with a team of Plaintiff’s counsel to participate in a mock Rule 16(b) case management conference during the final plenary session.
