Nationally Recognized Women in Law to Explore Ethics of Legal Hold

NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2014 Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. (BIA), a leader in data preservation and eDiscovery software and services, announced that they will be hosting an all-ethics credit CLE panel on the Emerging Technologies Track at LegalTech 2014.

We feel this is another great program presented in the BIA tradition that our attendees have come to expect, that features nationally recognized women in law, plus a full hour of ethics credit” added Thompson.
