Here is a guest post by Sarah Brown, host of Exterro’s blog, E-Discovery 360.
“Ralph Losey, a partner at Jackson Lewis and an authority on e-discovery has created
the Online Electronic Discovery Law program. Its 61 modules cover the topic well. Students get certified once they’ve proved their knowledge to Losey through assignments and conference calls. The full program takes roughly 50 to 150 hours to complete. It’s free for the first 15 classes with the remaining courses and certification costing up to $1,500.”
“Another opportunity is from the American Bar Association, which hosts e-discovery practitioners’ workshops aimed at intermediate and advanced practitioners. The Organization of Legal Professionals offers courses for both beginners and advanced students, as well as one specifically tailored to tech support staff.
Individual software packages also may come bundled with some training and there are also user group conferences. For example, Exterro offers an annual user conference that brings together experts to share best practices and help attendees learn.”
