The conference is hosted by the Legal Learning Series, an organization dedicated to providing higher continuing legal education programs, networking opportunities and training for litigation support, eDiscovery, forensic data recovery and trial presentation. The conference is especially significant in light of recent amendments to the Florida Rules of Civil Procedures that address the discovery of electronically stored information.
