Countdown to Legal Week! In this webinar, take a look into eDiscovery Assistant — the only legal research tool and learning center to help lawyers and legal support professionals understand the strategy of ediscovery. eDA enables lawyers and legal support professionals to pick up ediscovery when they need it — without reinventing the wheel or having to spend hours getting up to speed.
We’ll show you how you can find case law on your issue in a few clicks instead of hours, how to use our checklists to implement processes for your clients without reinventing the wheel and why firms are adopting eDA at a record pace. We’ll also give you a sneak peek of our brand new Learning Center being rolled out during LegalWeek and show you how you can jump on and learn about concepts on demand with practical ways for you to use the learning immediately.
We’ll hear from users on why they love eDA and tell you how we can set up a time to discuss your or your firm’s needs during LegalWeek or anytime.
