Information governance: legal profession's hottest topic

February 13, 2014 | By Herb Perone Chair, NPC Newsmakers Committee |

The legal profession's rapidly growing reliance on new forms of software and technology to answer a wide range of substantive legal questions and find responsive documents for litigation -- and whether mathematical algorithms will eliminate armies of young attorneys and raise fairness issues -- will be explored by a panel of e-discovery experts at a Newsmakers news conference on Monday, Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. in the Zenger Room.

Moderating the panel will be Jason R. Baron, an internationally recognized expert in e-discovery, co-chair of a new Information Governance Initiative and former Director of Litigation for the National Archives and Records Administration. Other panelists include Conor R. Crowley, founder of Crowley Law Office; Kevin M. Clark, vice president of the Global Client Advisory Group at TrustPoint International; Monica McCarroll, chair of Williams Mullen’s e-Discovery and Information Governance Section, and Paul Starrett, Counsel & Chief Global Risk Officer, UBIC North America.

Like all Newsmaker events, this news conference is free of charge and open to credentialed media and club members.
