I have been to Legal Tech pretty much every year since it was first held and the main topic of discussion for at least the past decade has been eDiscovery. This year I will be looking for feedback on usage of the UTBMS eDiscovery Task Codes released last year and to monitor the spread of legal ebilling to the eDiscovery community.
There is still some work to do fully align UTBMS coding and legal ebilling to the EDRM Metrics Cube. The revised UTBMS Activity and Expense Codes are in the final stages of ratification, and the LOC needs to kick-off a project to update the timekeeper positions used in the LEDES© ebilling formats. But neither of these prevents clients from using the eDiscovery Task Codes now to finally gain insight into their eDiscovery spend.
