The Massachusetts Bar Association’s Judicial Administration Section is pleased to bring its “View from the Bench” program series back to Springfield this December. These programs provide valuable insights for new attorneys and seasoned litigators, allowing for an opportunity to pose questions to experienced members of the bench and bar in a comfortable and confidential environment.

Judicial Administration Section Chair Michael H. Hayden will moderate a panel discussion with three sitting judges and one experienced litigator who will discuss e-discovery in the state and federal courts, and recent amendments concerning electronically stored information (ESI) in the Massachusetts and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Massachusetts Rules of Professional Conduct.

Please join us for a panel discussion, featuring members of the Superior Court bench, the federal bench and the Massachusetts bar, concerning e-discovery and, specifically, party obligations to:

  • Preserve
  • Disclose
  • Produce
  • Supplement

Additional topics will include discovery plans for ESI, the potential sanctions parties may face for non-compliance, cost allocations, subpoena of ESI from non-parties and ethical obligations of lawyers handling electronic discovery.

Members of the Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire County bar associations, who are not MBA members, can enjoy a special discounted rate of $25. To register, please contact the Massachusetts Bar Association Member Service Center at (617) 338-0530.
