Join us in Knoxville on Dec. 11 for lunch and a one-hour dual credit CLE produced by the Law Tech Section. Presented by Stephen Johnson of Ritchie, Dillard, Davies & Johnson, Gone in a Snap! - Collecting and Preserving Disappearing Evidence from Snapchat and More is applicable to practitioners in multiple areas of the law. Apps like Snapchat and WhatsApp claim that messages and photos sent through the app disappear, raising the question of what to do when the app may contain key evidence for your case. Attendees will learn how to identify which sources of electronic evidence to examine and how to try to collect and preserve this evidence before it's gone. Law Tech section members receive a discount for this program. 

Here are the key details:

When: Dec. 11. Registration and lunch begin at 11:30 a.m. and the CLE runs 12 - 1 p.m. (Local time)

Where: Ritchie, Dillard, Davies & Johnson, 606 W. Main Street, Suite 300, Knoxville, TN
