Extract from Doug Austin's article "Observations from the Annual ILTA Conference"
A couple of weeks ago, at the end of the International Legal Technology Association’s (ILTA) annual conference, which went virtual this year as ILTA>ON, I asked for people to provide their thoughts as a post mortem about this year’s conference, which was the first major conference in the annual legal technology calendar to be conducted as a virtual conference. Took a while to get some feedback and observations and even more time for me to go through them, but here they are, along with my own at the end of this post.
Thanks to everyone who provided comments to me – you effectively wrote my blog post for today! :o)
An outstanding conference and an excellent use of the virtual environment, especially given the quick turnaround time they had to prepare once they decided to go totally virtual.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
