“What I Learned This Summer at ILTA’06”

Calling all techies who missed the festivities in Orlando:

"Throughout the year, the International Legal Technology Association hosts e-mail listservs, webinars and regional meetings. But once a year, more than 1,100 attendees and hundreds of technology vendors converge in one spot for the group’s major educational conference.


"ILTA’s educational scheme is divided into tracks, and one of the most popular this year was the Litigation Support Peer Group Track. I attended many of these sessions both Monday and Tuesday to hear how other firms are dealing with electronic discovery and litigation response plans. The new civil procedure rules were a hot topic in every session, and speculation went in several different directions as to how litigation support departments were going to evolve to respond to these new procedures."
