E-Discovery Seminar
The Electronic Discovery and Digital Evidence Committee of the Florida Bar’s Business Law Section proposes a ½ day CLE session on emerging electronic discovery and information governance issues. This CLE will focus on similarities and differences in Federal and Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, including latest state and federal decisional authority addressing preservation, privilege, privacy and electronic discovery ethical issues. We will invite at least one Florida circuit judge, and one U.S. Magistrate Judge to participate. In-house and retained attorneys who need to acquire or sharpen their skills in electronic discovery will hear the current thought on the handling of electronically stored information (ESI), including descriptions and interpretations of judicial decisions. They will learn approaches they can take back and immediately apply in their practice. Attendees will also gain invaluable insights on how best to prepare their technical staff and information systems to respond to requests for ESI. To register for the June 27, 2013 live presentation, you must use the Annual Convention registration form in the May 1 Bar Journal or at www.floridabar.org. Note: Only use this brochure to register for the realtime or to order the course book.

Get Ready for the LL"Sea" Change- Navigating the New Florida Revised LLC Act
For the first time since originally enacted, Florida has a completely new and thoroughly revised LLC Act. The New Act was enacted by the Florida Legislature on May 3, 2013, and signed into law by the Governor on June 14, 2013. The new LLC Act becomes effective January 1, 2014 for all limited liability companies formed on or after that date, and any previously existing LLCs which elect to be governed by the new Act. All LLCs doing business in Florida become subject to the New Act on January 1, 2015. The New Act was created by a Drafting Committee of The Florida Bar, based principally on the Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act of 2006 as amended 2011 ("RULLCA"), but with many deviations from RULLCA. The New Act creates entirely new chapter 605 effective January 1, 2014, and repeals existing chapter 608 effective January 1, 2015 . There are numerous modernization changes in the New Act which should make Florida LLCs more attractive and user-friendly. This Program will examine the most significant aspects of the New Act, including the major changes from Existing Law. All of the speakers were instrumental members of the Drafting Committee which created the New Act. The Program will be moderated by the Chairman of the Drafting Committee, and the panel includes the Reporter for the Drafting Committee, the Bureau Chief of the Corporations Division of the Department of State who worked extensively as part of the Drafting Committee, the Recording Secretary for the Drafting Committee, and members of the Executive Committee which prepared the White Paper explaining the Act for the Florida Legislature.

Recent Developments in Arbitration - the Revised Florida Arbitration Code and Recent Supreme Court Decisions
In 2013, the Florida Legislature amended the Florida Arbitration Code when it enacted the Revised Uniform Arbitration Act approved by the National Commission on Uniform State Laws and the American Bar Association. Now called the Revised Florida Arbitration Code, Florida has substantially rewritten the statutes governing arbitration. During the amendment process, the United States Supreme Court has decided cases dealing with arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act, which would preempt the Revised Florida Arbitration Code. This CLE addresses the substantive changes to Florida statutes dealing with arbitration and the decisional law recently handed down by the high court.
