I spoke with Jason R. Baron, of counsel in the Information Governance and eDiscovery Group at Drinker Biddle & Reath in Washington, D.C. Jason served as the director of litigation for 13 years at the National Archives and Records Administration.

We discussed a panel he is moderating at a seminar that UBIC is hosting about Conducting Legal Business in Japan and the Rest of Asia called Information Governance as a Global Priority: Some Thoughts Based on Recent U.S E-Discovery Case Law & Practice. Baron explained why information governance is such a popular topic in the legal profession, how Big Data is elevating information governance into a global concern, and key policy practices that can help organizations manage the convergence between information governance and electronic discovery.
