Once Again at Legaltech, eDiscovery Prevails, Word Cloud Shows

It has become an annual tradition for JoAnna Forshee at InsideLegal to take the text of the Legaltech agenda, mash it up into a word cloud, and thereby illustrate the conference’s dominant themes.

As you can see above, the biggest topic of the show is, once again, e-discovery. But if you compare this year’s word cloud to last year’s, below, e-discovery is less dominant this year and some other themes stand out, among them “data” and “investigations.”

You should check out JoAnna’s full post, where she has the Legaltech word clouds going back to 2011. That year, believe it or not, e-discovery was not the major theme.
