What is “Proportional Discovery”?

Behind-the-Scenes with the Drafters of the New Proportionality Guidelines and Best Practices

April 21, 2021; 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. ET (Virtual Event)

This two-hour virtual CLE* program coincides with the release of the Third Edition of the Guidelines and Best Practices for Implementing the 2015 Discovery Amendments to Achieve Proportionality (to be published in April 2021 under the auspices of the Bolch Judicial Institute at Duke Law School). The drafters of the guidelines—themselves leading judges and discovery practitioners—will discuss the evolution of the guidelines, key considerations in discovery strategy, cutting-edge issues in e-discovery, and more!

Presenters will include Judge Paul Grimm (District Judge for the United States District Court for the District of Maryland), Judge Andrew J. Peck (Senior Counsel, DLA Piper LLP and previously United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of New York), Judge Lee H. Rosenthal (Chief United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas), Jennie Lee Anderson (Partner, Andrus Anderson LLP), and David Kessler (Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright LLP).
