||2020 Litigation Support Legal Update
Litigation support professionals are on the front lines of electronic discovery, and—in an era of greater data insecurity—data privacy and data protection are now key concerns for lit support teams.

||State of the Legal Technology Job Market 2020
TRU Founder and CEO Jared Coseglia will deliver a statistically rich overview on where the litigation support and eDiscovery job market is today, what hiring managers need to know about candidates motivations, and what job seekers need to know about the desires and habits of employers. It will also cover what adjustments law firms, corporations, service providers, consulting firms, and government entities are making as a result of the pandemic, specifically dynamic increases to contract staffing modalities and virtual WFH employment. Coseglia will also detail the intersection of litigation tools and talent with data privacy and security and expose the job market trends in those verticals which will define much of corporate hiring for the rest of 2020 and 2021. This session will add value to any hiring managers process and give job seekers unique advantage in understanding the current staffing climate in our industry.
||Mobile to Mainstream
Over the last 15 years, litigants have made strides in establishing defensible, repeatable procedures for preserving, collecting, processing, culling, reviewing, and producing legacy paper documents, email, and productivity files residing on personal computers and servers, to the point these functions have been brought in-house at many corporations and a few law firms. By contrast, few corporations and firms have acted to systemize the preservation and production of data from smartphones. Despite being powerful, capacious computers, most lawyers and litigants treat mobile devices as if they only made phone calls. When addressed at all, smartphones are relegated to forensic examination by an expert rather than approached as a routine, repeatable process managed by eDiscovery teams. Smartphones aren’t “special” and, by virtue of enhanced security features on phones, there’s little responsive content that can be collected through forensics that cannot also be gotten by eDiscovery personnel. Smartphones are everyday tools that must be made a part of everyday, mainstream eDiscovery.
