Ediscovery Program Management:
From Vinyl to Virtual

May 24 | Noon – 1pm CT

Are you still doing ediscovery using 2005 technology and processes? Or, are you up-to-speed with 2017 ediscovery practices across the EDRM?

Whether 10 days or 10 years ago, you will never forget your very first ediscovery project. Even if process and procedure were missing or your own experience base was still unformed, ediscovery is not for novices. Both law firms and corporations can benefit from managing ediscovery as a program so that the organization gains from appropriate security levels, standardized processes and workflows, and cost predictability and control.

Join three ediscovery veterans for this webinar, focusing on discovery process formation, implementation, documentation and managed services at each step of the ERDM.
