Dearest EDRM community,
The word of the week is negotiate.
More than 11,000 souls perished in Libya when a dam collapsed. First Ukrainian cargo ships arrive in port after Russia’s exit from the grain deal. Live updates on the United Auto Workers strike. The Dominican Republic closed its borders to Haiti in their dispute over construction of a canal targeting a river that runs through both countries. All 50 US state Attorneys General urge Congress to protect children from AI. Law firms, never a fan of #eDiscovery’s “exploding megabytes” have invented an “exploding offer” for associates. A data commons initiative is normalizing world data, HT beSpacific.
In legal tech this week
DLA Piper, the new home of EDRM leader, Eric Mandel, is advising OpenAI reports Politico. Kiwi Camara, DISCO’s former CEO may be planning his next venture. United Lex has a new CEO. Doug Austin covered Special Master Maura Grossman’s new protocol. Dennis Kennedy generated four scenarios for legal education in the future. Rob Robinson of ComplexDiscovery has his 31st Quarterly eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey- Fall Edition out. With 15 short questions including three new multiple-choice questions focused on understanding the use of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI) in the eDiscovery ecosystem. We highly encourage you to share your knowledge on the survey, it takes 3-5 minutes.
