The 9th annual Electronic Discovery Reference Model kickoff meeting wrapped up this week in Saint Paul, Minn., to set the agenda and direction for the year.

The information from LegalTech New York will not grow stale as legal technology continues to move ahead to LegalTech West Coast 2013 at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles from May 21 to 22.

So I was very disappointed to miss the keynote set up like a talk show, such as "Good Morning America." [MORE]

It's just so hard to choose among so many compelling choices keynotes, seminars, plenary sessions, exhibits, briefings, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, receptions, awards.
