Program Description: "The Enlightened Legal Hold" is a complimentary one-hour program presented by leading e-discovery experts Brad Harris and Craig Ball. They will offer a fresh approach to legal holds following the Pension Committee opinion which they first outlined in the white paper that they co-authored by the same title. It is available for immediate download at www.legalholdpro.com/enlightened.

Harris and Ball will examine the "Five Deadly Sins of Legal Holds" that encapsulate the common underlying reasons for the slow pace of change. They then turn to a new way of thinking embodied in the seven "Principles for Legal Hold Enlightenment." These embrace the concept that a legal hold is an organic process and offer practical steps that any legal professional can follow to mitigate risk in legal preservation. The presenters will also look at recent trends, including discussing recent developments such as Judge Grimm's Victor Stanley II opinion and the latest update on legal hold best practices guidelines from The Sedona Conference.
