Complimentary Webinar: A Proposed Information Governance Framework for Law Firms

Wednesday, September 19, 2012
2:00 - 3:00 pm Eastern

With lawyers using mobile devices, clients asking about information security, and the continuing explosion of digital media, Information Governance is the new buzzword at law firms today. In this brave new world, many firms struggle to understand just what law firm IG is, why they need it, and how it can be applied to the business of practicing law. In this webcast you will learn about a newly proposed IG framework for law firms. Developed by a group of thought leaders at a recent Law Firm Information Governance Symposium, the framework offers law firms guidelines, definitions, and principles for creating an IG program. The authors offer the framework as a first step toward an industry-wide approach, but encourage each firm to tailor it to work for its unique culture.

Discussions Include:

  • How to use the framework for strategic IG discussions at your firm
  • Who to involve in developing IF to ensure its success
  • What the fundamental principles of law firm IG are
  • What law firm processes must be guided by the principles
  • How IG can increase productivity, mitigate risk and lower costs for your firm

In her role at Iron Mountain Carolyn Casey specializes in law firm information governance and management strategies. She led development of the Law Firm Information Governance Symposium, has an extensive eDiscovery background, and practiced law at Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison LLP. Ms. Casey holds an AB from Stanford University and a JD from American University.
