    Good afternoon! Thank you for joining us for the Conference Session Recap highlighting sessions in the Litigation & Practice Support track at ILTAs 2014 Annual ConferenceImagine. Im Joy Holley, and Im a member of ILTAs Litigation & Practice Support Steering Committee.

    MB:And Im Michael Boggs, your Liaison for 2014 Annual Conference.*JH: Heres our agenda. We want to give you a quick overview of the daily conference key notes, then focus on the Litigation & Practice Support related sessions that occurred throughout the week in Nashville.

    MB: If you have any questions or comments, we encourage you to type them in the Q&A section located on the lower left-hand side of your screen and we can address those at the appropriate time.*Joy: So, hopefully some of you on the line attended conference, and came back to your teams excited and energized about what you learned there. But, with so much great content throughout the week, you may not have been able to attend all the sessions that interested you. Or, maybe youre like me, and want to go back and listen again to a session that you attended. Or you want to refer a colleague to a session that is particularly relevant to what theyre doing.

    MB:As ILTA members, you have access to the recordings of the conference sessions whether you attended or not. That allows you to take advantage of the content all year in your strategic planning and as part of professional development initiatives.

    JH:Thats right. There are several sessions that Ive referenced to people on my team already, and that Ive listened to again in developing my own business plans and budgets.

    MB: There are several ways to find the conference materials. First, theres a tab directing you to the Conference downloads on the home page.

    *MB: Or, once youre in the Connected Community, you can go to the Resources tab at the top of the page, and access it this way.. The Litigation & Practice Support Peer Group sessions are located under the Organization Management Track. Youll see that, for most of the sessions, there is both an audio recording, and a pdf containing any written materials that were provided by the speakers.

    JH: You can see theres also a separate sub-folder under ILTA 2014 for three of the keynotes.


    JH: Were focused today primarily on the sessions in the Litigation & Practice Support Group---or LPSPGtrack. The 14 educational sessions associated with the Litigation & Practice Support peer group began on Monday, and Monday was the day with the heaviest concentration of Peer Group managed sessions.

    MB: Its worth noting, however, that you may find that content managed by other peer groups interests or is relevant to you. So we encourage you to browse through the descriptions for other sessions that occurred throughout the week.

    JH: Thats right, and many ILTA peer groups offer cross-programming throughout the year so its a great way to stay connected to professionals in related disciplines.

    MB: Recordings of three of the keynotes are also available. The reviews on the keynote speakers were great.

    *MB: Turning to the Litigation & Practice Support sessions, Session 1 was titled A need for speed: leveraging analytics in document review and it was coordinated and moderated by Julie Brown at Vorys. This presentation was set up as a sort of show and tell where three peers demonstrated how have leveraged analytics in different platforms to deliver better results. Joy, do you want to speak a bit to this since you were one of the presenters?

    JH: Sure!

    LPS conference content is driven by member feedback. Weve all seen demos, weve all seen presentations by vendors or others talking about the concept of advanced analytics, but Litigation Support professionals told us they wanted to see how these tools work in real life. So what we did here was show the application, and how these tools work in real-life scenarios. We had Greg Chan from Bingham McCutchen demonstrating advanced workflow using Recomminds Axcelerate, Mike Quartararo from Stroock & Stroock showing Relativity, and I showed Viewpoint. One of the really interesting things about the presentations is that we each chose scenarios in which we leveraged these tools in non-traditional ways. So, for example, Greg talked through a workflow for using Axcelerate to expedite review of an incoming government production, and I talked about our use of Viewpoint in a clients internal investigation.

    *JH: Youll note in the materials that there were no slides for this particular session, because we were showing live demonstrations. Or, more accurately, we were talking through work flow and scenarios, and each of the vendors had representatives in the back of the room demonstrating the functionality we were talking about.

    MB: We just picked out these slides to give you a flavor of what the audience was seeing. The takeaway here is that increasing numbers of Litigation Support professionals are gaining valuable experience with advanced analytics, and ILTA provides great forums for you to have conversations with your peers about what others are doing. *JH: Thats right, and the descriptions of the workflows that we each used, as well as some tips and tricks, are beneficial. For example, we talked about tips to optimize data sets before you start leveraging some of these advanced tools.

    MB: The audience comments for this session definitely confirmed that the presentation provided valuable insight, and people loved the format.

    *JH: This was part of the demonstration discussing Viewpoints Relationship Analyzer.*JH: Moving on, our two sessions on ESI Protocols created some of the greatest buzz at conference. This was a really interesting, two-part presentation designed to give Litigation Support professionals backstage access to the preparation that goes into developing effective eDiscovery strategy in complex litigation, including the perspectives of the lawyers and a federal judge who considers eDiscovery issues regularly.

    MB: We really had an all-star cast here, and we were thrilled to host Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck from the Southern District of New York, to preside over our mock proceedings. Of course, Judge Peck is a well known thought leader in the eDiscovery area, and sits in the federal circuit where many prominent eDiscovery opinions have been written.

    *JH: Judge Pecks insight was invaluable. The sessions were presented as a sort of play in three acts, during which the audience listened to each side in a mock complex litigation proceeding prepare its eDiscovery strategy, negotiate to find areas of agreement, and then argue the remaining issues in dispute before Judge Peck.

    MB: The lead lawyers were played by Craig Ball, who is a prolific writer and speaker in the eDiscovery space. And Patrick Oot, the co-founder of the Electronic Discovery Institute.

    JH: Dera Nevin and Bryon Bratcher gave the perspectives of client representatives and some of the business considerations that play into this process.

    MB: So often as Litigation Support professionals, were asked to participate in the process with very little context. We kind of operate in a vacuum. The audience thought these sessions gave great insight into the framework and rules for the eDiscovery process and the law behind it.

    JH: Right. It was all about why we do what we do, and how it fits into the big picture.

    *MB: Another thing ILTA members always tell us is that they really value takeaways. T
