IBA 2020 Virtually Together conference – Litigating in the Internet Age

This year, the IBA 2020 Virtually Together conference takes place as a virtual month-long conference bringing together the international legal community in a series of over 250 session run by industry leaders. The conference takes places between 2 – 27 November 2020.

The conference Litigation Committee will be presenting a session on “Litigating in the internet age” on Thursday 26 November 2020 at 9:00 – 10:00 EST / 14:00 – 15:00 GMT / 23:00 – 00:00 JST.

Event information

A panel-style discussion chaired by Jane Colston Elliott (Brown Rudnick LLP).

Speakers

  • Paul Lowenstein QC (Twenty Essex)
  • Lionel Tay (Rajah and Tann)
  • Leanne Yanli Zheng (JunHe LLP)
  • Robert Johnston (Johnston Winter & Slattery)

 

Topics for discussion will include:

Data cases: The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) are creating rights for individuals against companies and sectors that have traditionally ignored data privacy when designing their business models. How are these statutes helping people enforce their rights in practice? How is litigation funding assisting them? What are the main themes in breach and other cases involving data rights?

Litigation: Litigators have to be aware of how technology can help each step of the way, from service to tracing to disclosure to judgment e.g. cryptocurrency and enforcement/freezers etc; online court processes that are coming down the track; the growing acceptance of the use of continuous active learning in disclosure reviews; the courts’ growing awareness of the use of tech in terms of court documents (all of docket, disclosure and trial presentation); the use of things like blockchain for settlement arrangements and/or escrow arrangements; and availability of data analytics which now can consider and assess judgments, barristers, judges and law firms and make potential predictions as to bench specific outcomes.
