Rules, Regulations, and Roles: The Law and Your Part in the e-Disclosure Process

From a potential new disclosure rule for England and Wales to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affecting Europe and beyond, new rules and regulations are changing the duties and the roles of the participants in the e-disclosure process. Senior judges and rule-makers on both sides of the Atlantic have called for more judicial "stewardship" of the discovery/disclosure process, but many judges have resisted taking on this role. With the UK’s GC100 calling for comprehensive change in the disclosure process, what other legal professionals could see their roles change? Will judges in the UK become more active in the disclosure process, and will lawyers cooperate more? Mr. Justice Birss joins United Kingdom and international experts to apply the rules and regulations to your role.

International Disclosure, Data Privacy, United States v. Microsoft, & the CLOUD Act

On 25 April 2014, United States Magistrate Judge James Francis IV issued a memorandum and order in the so-called “Microsoft Dublin Warrant Matter” that would have a profound impact on the debate over international data privacy and the rights of government access to data in international jurisdictions. With the matter now before the United States Supreme Court in United States v. Microsoft, the sudden and unexpected passage of the Clarifying Lawful Uses of Data (CLOUD) Act has brought heightened attention to this international debate. In this keynote session, Judge Francis will be joined by Rachi Messing, Senior Program Manager at Microsoft Israel, for a discussion of the international data implications of these developments and the practical considerations for your disclosure practice.
