Topic: eDiscovery of the Future

Join us for a conversation around the future of eDiscovery. What technologies will shape our roles in the future? What processes may change? How will courts evolve? What will paralegals/attorneys/litigation support professionals of the future look like and what skills will they need?

Speakers:

  • Melanie Bostick is a Senior Solutions Architect at Epiq. Melanie has over 30 years of experience in the legal industry, primarily in the areas of eDiscovery, information management and operations. She spent 19 years on the law firm side in various capacities including paralegal and litigation support, and 12 years on the vendor side leveraging her legal, operations and advisory experience to further align client’s operational and strategic objectives with the right mix of people, process and technology.
  • Keisha Gayle-Luzarie is a paralegal at Prince Lobel Tye LLP with over nine years of experience. She has worked in various areas of the law including insurance and reinsurance, family law and general litigation with an emphasis on discovery and trial preparation.

Charitable Drive: Women’s Lunch Place:

  • The Women’s Lunch Place is a safe, welcoming day shelter community, providing nutritious food and individualized services for women who are experiencing homelessness or poverty. We had a very successful in-person volunteer event at the Women’s Lunch Place earlier this year. Although in-person volunteer opportunities are currently limited, the WLP is still open and serving healthy take-out meals to women every day. You can continue to support the Women’s Lunch Place by making a donation at the link below.

We hope to see you at the meeting!
