E-Discovery Ireland 2012

2nd Annual E-Discovery and Digital Evidence Conference

E-Discovery Ireland Conference 2012

E-Discovery Ireland is a world-class e-discovery and digital evidence conference which is being held in Dublin on October 26th 2012.

As demonstrated by the inaugural conference in October 2011, electronic discovery in Ireland has grown significantly in recent years and there is a clear need for an event which allows Irish practitioners to develop their knowledge of this fast-changing area.

E-Discovery Ireland is the only conference of its type and therefore provides a unique forum for Irish legal and technology professionals to discuss the shared challenges and opportunities around e-discovery.

Join us on October 26th for a packed one-day programme of education and discussion featuring some of the world's foremost experts speaking alongside leading Irish practitioners. E-discovery is one of the most important and dynamic areas at the intersection of technology and the law, marked by a constant stream of significant new decisions, cases and technology developments. Participation in E-Discovery Ireland 2012 therefore represents not just an investment in your professional development but an opportunity to contribute to the development of e-discovery in Ireland.

CPD / CPE Credits for Attendance

Solicitors should be aware that the Law Society does not accredit conferences for CPD, rather the onus is on each solicitor to judge the quality of education / training and the extent to which it is relevant to their particular practice. However, to assist solicitors in this respect, Cernam has provided details of the conference programme to the Law Society who have indicated that solicitors attending this conference may claim their attendance towards their CPD requirement.

Barristers should similarly be aware that the Bar Council does not have a formal process for accrediting CPD courses or course providers. Barristers are free to choose activities relevant to their individual professional needs and are required to maintain a record of their compliance with the CPD scheme.

Other professionals whose certifying bodies require CPD or CPE credits should review the rules of their particular schemes. As an example, under the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) CPE scheme the conference would be categorised as "group A" credits under "Legal, Regulations, Compliance and Investigations".

Anyone requiring a certificate of attendance should see Colm Deehan during the conference or contact Cernam following the event.
