Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will offer suggestions to litigators to help them comply with the new GDPR during e-discovery.

- Discussion of the GDPR’s impact on U.S. litigation and discovery practices
- Potential penalties associated with noncompliance
- Best practices for U.S. counsel to ensure compliance and avoid fines
The panel will review these and other important topics:

- When are the new obligations triggered under the GDPR?
- What are the penalties for noncompliance with the GDPR?
- How can U.S. counsel ensure compliance and avoid penalties?
