Recognizing that most of lawyers’ clients rely less and less on paper and more and more on e-mail, text messages, Facebook, Twitter, and any number of social media platforms, the Minnesota Rules of Civil Procedure have been updated to bring litigation into the 21st Century. Whether you represent individuals or companies—large, medium, or small—your clients are using digital technology, and so should you. Learn how to make e-discovery work for you and your clients, and learn why it’s the right and ethical way to conduct litigation.

Lunch and registration will begin at 12:00 p.m. The program will begin at 12:15 p.m. 


David Miller has more than 20 years experience as a litigator and trial attorney. He knows how to assess, build, and resolve cases to the satisfaction of clients in challenging legal matters. Throughout his career he has had a keen and abiding interest in the discovery phase of lawsuits and investigations, and has focused on e-discovery since its origins in the early 2000s. His interest in discovery started when he clerked for a United States Magistrate Judge. There he learned how crucial discovery was to the merits of a case, how pursuing the right strategy could pave the way to a successful resolution, and how the wrong strategy could derail a case, sometimes regardless of the merits. His interest continued to grow throughout his career as a partner in large and small firms and as an e-discovery consultant. The process has evolved from a paper based process to a digital one, and he understands how digital technology has forever changed the role that discovery has in modern litigation. Developing his ability to hone the discovery process has allowed him to increase the positive impact of this phase of a case while making it less costly and more efficient.
