The Masters Conference is proud to present its Washington D.C. event! Each event offers varied educational tracks that will allow attendees to learn from corporate and law firm thought leaders.

Interest List

Whether you’re dealing with e-discovery in a new, socially networked world, find your company expanding globally and thus facing international discovery issues, or planning for the future of e-discovery in your firm or company, you know there’s a divide between what is in practice today and where your firm needs to be in the near future. Legal professionals must develop strategies for spanning this e-discovery divide before it expands further across traditional borders, whether physical or technicals.

Since 2006, all over the world The Masters Conference has brought together experts and leading professionals from law firms, corporations and the bench to discuss strategies, practices and resources for managing the information lifecycle. By limiting attendance, The Masters Conference fosters focused, rigorous intellectual discussions where legal and technology professionals from government (e.g., DOJ), law enforcement (e., CIA, FBI,) corporations and law firms share, collaborate and obtain master knowledge of the most critical topics in the legal industry today.

The full 2-day event, which includes a Masters Awards Ceremony and end-of-conference Happy Hour, is jam packed with experts having in-depth discussions around challenges and solutions focused on:
