November MALSP Meeting - The Great eDiscovery Debate!


There are some topics in eDiscovery and data management that continue to create provoking discussions and passionate views, so we decided to put them up for debate!  Please join us on Thursday, November 19th for an exciting debate on hot topics including culling prior to processing, law firm cost recovery and hosting internally or with a provider.  We promise this debate won’t disappoint and winners will be announced in real time.

As this is our last MALSP meeting of the year, our panel of debaters and the board will wrap-up with their lessons learned in 2020 and thoughts to take into 2021.  Attendees are welcome to join us on video during this time (not required), say “hi” to your fellow members and share your lessons learned.
