eDiscovery Executive Certificate
Share |

broadening your knowledge of the entire e-discovery process

The volume and variety of electronically stored information (ESI) is increasing at the same time as regulation, rules and court mandates. Internationally, eDisclosure is on the rise, and in the US, well over half of the states include an ethical mandate or suggestion of technical competence. Many legal and technical professionals understand part, but not all, of the electronic discovery process. Other new entrants need a complete foundation to support on boarding.

To avoid ethical lapses and keep with the standard of practice, legal professionals at all levels need eDiscovery Executive Certificate (eDEx) training. With the eDEx Program, legal professionals — from law students to paralegals, attorneys to IT professionals — have access to our self-paced interactive online training course and more.

This training provides the groundwork for broadening your knowledge of the entire e-discovery process, plus access to educational lectures that mirror real-world experiences.
