As a prelude to the its 5th Annual E-Discovery Conference, the University of Florida Levin College of Law is sponsoring its first E-Discovery CareerFest on March 29 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Holland 180 and the courtyard. CareerFest responds to the growing interest of University of Florida law students in exploring career paths that involve electronic discovery and data analytic skills.
CareerFest brings to campus electronic discovery and data specialists from law firms, major legal service providers, and Fortune 100 companies to talk with students about e-discovery career opportunities. The goal of E-Discovery CareerFest is to provide a window into this emerging world and offer personal and other experiences to allow students to judge whether e-discovery and data analytics offers a future that meets their skills, interests and passions. CareerFest will also provide networking opportunities that may lead to further and richer contacts such as shadowing, site visits, externships, internships, and post-graduation employment.
CareerFest is a very informal event with no dress code. Students are encouraged to meet, hang-out with, ask questions and generally explore whether e-discovery and data analysis career paths are for them. Our visitors will want to hear about student interests and background and what students would like in their legal careers. CareerFest is an opportunity to network with e-discovery legal professionals to see how e-discovery and data analysis can be part of their future.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
