LitWorks Announces eDiscovery Specialist Boot Camp Training June 16-20, 2014

Law Firms and Corporate Legal Departments Use LitWorks to Bring Advanced Education In-House

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- LitWorks, A DTI Company, today scheduled its inaugural eDiscovery Specialist Boot Camp Training designed to expand attorneys', paralegals' and litigation support professionals' depth and breadth of knowledge for managing electronically stored information (ESI) as it pertains to litigation. The course will be held in Atlanta at the DTI National Technology Center, June 16-20, 2014.

Members of the litigation community understand how much the ESI landscape has changed in recent years. Despite this awareness, many are struggling to keep pace as emerging technologies and new frontiers such as early case assessment (ECA) and technology-assisted review (TAR or predictive coding) become more commonplace. eDiscovery specialists at an AmLaw 100 firm have already undergone a program like this.

Jeff Jacobs, associate general counsel and eDiscovery counsel at DTI, states, "In addition to the rapidly changing technical landscape, there is a new reality in the law firm environment that involves more use of technology by attorneys, paralegals and litigation support personnel. Other driving factors include increased pressure from clients to reduce the cost of legal services. The LitWorks eDiscovery Specialist Boot Camp Training helps professionals in law firms learn how to better handle the major change from an analogue discovery world to a digital world and balance technology with human resources to benefit their firm and its clients. While delving into the complexities of ESI, the academy provides practical applications that all of us can put into action for our clients each and every day."

A recent article published on the Wall Street Journal's website states that corporations are now putting their outside law firms to the test by evaluating and challenging their attorneys' use of technology. So far, no firm has passed. Many leading law firms and corporate legal departments are now requiring their paralegals and litigation support professionals to become subject-matter experts in managing ESI. By learning more about the ESI life cycle, how to control costs and how to minimize the risk of fines and sanctions, they can offer competitive advantages over firms that are less savvy.
