“Judge Harvey is one of the leading judicial thinkers on electronic discovery” – Chris Dale

Leading eDiscovery commentator Chris Dale mentioned in a recent blog postJudge Harvey is one of the leading judicial thinkers on electronic discovery, electronic evidence, and the use of technology by lawyers and courts.

Judge Harvey will be looking at eDiscovery from a judicial perspective. Judge Harvey joins International keynote speaker Browning Marean from DLA Piper US as the headline speakers at the conference.

At the inaugural conference earlier this year Judge Harvey left delegates in little doubt about the importance of how lawyers address electronic information. He impressed that lawyers need to be aware of the technologies and the evolving practices that are required to manage this information.

The 2nd Annual New Zealand eDiscovery Conference is presented by E-Discovery Consulting and EY. The conference has now developed into New Zealand’s leading eDiscovery and legal technology conference, providing a platform for New Zealand legal professionals to develop their knowledge in this fast-changing area.

The event will build on the success of the inaugural New Zealand eDiscovery Conference earlier in 2013 which attracted over 100 participants and was hailed as a great success by attendees.

My earlier post about the conference summarised the event in detail, whilst further information can be found on the 2nd Annual New Zealand eDiscovery Conference webpage.
