New Ipro Webinar on How to Get the Most Out of eDiscovery Education

eDiscovery trends 2020

Law School, Certifications, and Training (Oh my!) – How to Get the Most Out of eDiscovery Education (New Webinar)

Education in eDiscovery is a mixed bag. Anytime you talk to someone in this industry, it’s always interesting to hear how they started doing the work they are doing. I’ve never heard anyone say, “Oh, I majored in eDiscovery – it was my childhood dream,” but the common thread you do find is that they were interested in the law or technology (or both), which led them to a current role at a law firm, service provider, corporation, or software company.

However they arrived, the question remains about how to continue learning the latest trends and best-practices in order to do the job. Since many people attend webinars and conferences to do just that, we here at Ipro decided to do both and host a webinar on eDiscovery education live from the annual Ipro Tech Show.

On 3/12 at 2pm EST you can hear three industry leaders, each from a different segment of the training and certification world, discuss how you can get the most out of your eDiscovery education.

Hear Michael Quartararo from ACEDS, Josh Abbott from ASU, and Krista Schmidt from Ipro talk about how technology training and certification can give you a competitive edge in your career path, as well as offer their insight into the most important best-practices you should adopt on the job.

Upcoming Webinar! Learn why Ipro for desktop is the future of small-footprint eDiscovery solutions

The small law firm is often left out of the eDiscovery conversation. Faced with choosing an enterprise tool, sticking with legacy eDiscovery software that is no longer being developed, or the old standby, manual processes, it might seem that small firms are left little in the way of eDiscovery options.

Say hello to Ipro for desktop!

Ipro for desktop gives you BigLaw power with Small Firm overhead. This is a true all-in-one litigation platform, allowing you to effortlessly manage reviews, ingest native files, and accurately produce documents. You can also build case strategy using the fact management tool and prepare presentation in TrialDirector360.

For an in-depth look at how Ipro for desktop can help your legal team through the litigation lifecycle from discovery to trial, join Ipro’s VP of desktop solutions Derek Miller for an upcoming product webinar, December 18th at 1pm EST.

The True Meaning of eDiscovery Day

eDiscovery Day

Yes, it’s the holiday season, but do we need one for eDiscovery? With December 4th marking the 5th annual eDiscovery Day, the answer is yes! It was created to put a spotlight on our industry and to celebrate the professionals who make the legal process happen (often behind the scenes). For an industry that’s expected to reach almost $19 billion per year by 2023, up from more than $10 billion in 2018, there’s no denying that we’re deserving of a holiday!

However, as holidays are wont to do, they make us reflect on our purpose (it’s definitely not just about money). Instead, it’s important to remember that eDiscovery is about ensuring the strength of our justice system. It’s about making sure the legal process functions with accuracy and defensibility. One only has to return to Chief Justice John Roberts’ statements in 2015 (the year of the first eDiscovery day):

“The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure will achieve the goal of Rule 1 only if the entire legal community, including the bench, bar, and legal academy, step up to the challenge of making real change. Judges and lawyers [have an obligation] to work cooperatively in controlling the expense and time demands of litigation. Lawyers—though representing adverse parties—have an affirmative duty to work together, and with the court, to achieve prompt and efficient resolutions of disputes.”

And that’s why the mission of eDiscovery Day being a vendor agnostic celebration of this work we’re all trying to do (and do well) is so vital. It’s about the entire legal community stepping up to the challenge of working cooperatively to continually achieve the mandate of Rule 1: to reach a just, speedy, and inexpensive resolution to legal disputes.

So that’s what eDiscovery Day is about. It’s about all of us – practitioners, attorneys, judges, technologists, vendors (and even writers) – coming together and recognizing how important the work each of us does to ensure the goal of Rule 1 (and the entire justice system) is met.

3 Veteran Practitioners Discuss eDiscovery from the Trenches

eDiscovery from the Trenches WebinarThe old adage, “Those who do, do; and those who can’t, teach” is completely off-base, because the value of getting education from people who have been in your position and have experienced the difficulties first hand is priceless. That’s why people in all industries and trades seek out those veteran practitioners to share their experiences and act as mentors.

And eDiscovery is no different, especially with its unique challenges. Which is why Ipro chose 3 veteran eDiscovery practitioners with decades of experience to speak on our latest webinar: eDiscovery from the Trenches.

  • Brittany Thaler has eleven years’ experience in supporting teams as a paralegal and hot-seat operator in numerous arbitrations, evidentiary hearings, and trials (both bench and jury), and as a Litigation Support Paralegal, she advised, created, and managed various eDiscovery matters and presentation of cases at trial.
  • Jaime Sheppard has managed eDiscovery projects spanning Am Law 50 firms and FORTUNE 50 companies in a variety of practice areas, including product liability, antitrust, insurance, commercial litigation, and intellectual property, as well as non-litigation reviews, working closely with case teams to devise discovery plans and protocols, manage reviews, perform technical quality control, coordinating forensic collection of sensitive documents, etc.
  • Lori Bregenzer brings over 20 years of litigation technology experience with a background as the Litigation Technology Manager for a large law firm and subsequently as the owner of a boutique litigation software training and consulting company. These experiences, coupled with her many software certifications as well as the designation of Certified eDiscovery Specialist from ACEDS, give her a vast knowledge of eDiscovery and legal technology.

In the eDiscovery from the Trenches webinar you will hear about:

  • Industry Challenges & How to Overcome Them (Education, Cost, Technology)
  • Tips & Tricks for Developing a Successful Workflow (Managing Data, Search Techniques, Analytics/TAR)
  • How Technology Can Level the eDiscovery Playing Field (Smaller Firms, Judges View, Accessibility)

Ipro podcast on Lawyerist, part 3 Redactions

Ipro’s VP of desktop solutions Derek Miller talks about the recent issues that have occurred with redactions. Recently, in the news there is the story of redacted information erroneously/accidentally being exposed because of the tools that were used to do the redaction.  It’s probably not the first or the last time this will happen.  In that instance, it was more of an issue of understanding how the technology works vs. the tool that was used and that could be the bigger problem when it comes to selecting tools for the toolbox.

Also in this episode with Geoff Woods, we talk about what the ONE thing means, why we shouldn’t focus on more than one thing, how to pick a “thing”, and how to overcome the challenges along the way.
