Recorded: January 30, 2019


Each year, Ari Kaplan and OpenText partner to survey corporate legal professionals and gather their opinions on a range of eDiscovery, InfoGov, and technology questions. What metrics are you tracking? How is your caseload changing? What new security precautions are you taking? How have your responsibilities changed? Are robots taking your job?

In this breakout we’ll share survey data covering these questions and, joined by law firm and corporate legal guest speakers, engage in an interactive discussion on the state of the industry with diverse perspectives from consultants, vendors, outside counsel and corporate legal.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on January 30th, 2019.
