Weekly Letter to Our Global Community – 7 Jun 22
Dear EDRM Community,
The word of the week is family. As parents of the wee ones see light at the end of the tunnel for vaccines and formula, all families are facing the sucking sound of gas money emptying the coffers. Travel to family, whether air or car, is different, with a need for more flexibility in the getting and being there and a heightened awareness to make the trips safer. And the joy, the absolute joy, of connecting is palpable, making the journey all worth it.
In legal tech this week, work on a drone equipped with a stun gun was halted after AI ethics committee input. Skadden gets the Musk-Twitter matter and hiring continues in our sector. Rhys Dipshan surveyed how law firms have internalized machine learning and predictive analytics in specific practice areas.
EDRM Guardian Plus Partner, Everlaw, and EDRM are #WheelsUp for our continuing roadshow featuring Dr. Maura R. Grossman, Chuck Kellner and Mary Mack now onto New York June 8th and LA June 15th.
Our eDiscovery family gathered in our pilot event in Chicago, with EDRM General Counsel, Craig Ball, and Global Advisory Council leaders Jay Yelton, Doug Kaminski, John Pappas and Dr. Maura R. Grossman. The Depp-Heard verdict and photo forensics were a hot topic, besides our collective heartfelt personal and professional catchups. What a joy to hear the trademark buzz of our eDiscovery family reunion and welcome of our Zoom cousins.
