The program will commence with a presentation on best practices for E-discovery in light of the recent federal rule amendments and the impact on companies and their attorneys, especially when it comes to managing discovery. The Honorable Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., an attorney who served as the 60th governor of Maryland from 2003 to 2007, will then provide an overview of what can be expected from inside the beltway between now and 2020. Having served as governor, U.S. Congressman, state legislator, and civil litigator counseling clients on an array of government matters, including health care, finance, and economic development, Governor Ehrlich can offer a unique perspective on things to come. Sunday afternoon will conclude with an all-star panel focusing on diversity and inclusion in the courtroom. As courts are now encouraging law firms and their clients to have first chairs filled by women and minorities, this is a topic of vital importance to in-house and outside counsel alike.
