The legal industry first commercially applied machine learning with the emergence of technology enabled legal services. A 2012 opinion issued by Judge Andrew Peck in the matter of DaSilva Moore v. Publicis Groupe et. al. was the first to endorse the use of computer-assistance in the analysis of electronically stored information (ESI) in support of e-discovery under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Since then, various state, federal, and high courts have validated the appropriateness of machine learning and AI in response to document requests and predictive coding.
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.
