Smart Computing

As a community of Information Retrieval scientists, eDiscovery Attorneys, Project Managers, and Litigation Support leaders, eDiscovery People write articles, blog, tweet, and participate in forum discussions on topics related to information governance, digital forensics, cloud computing, and electronic discovery.

eDiscovery People attracts cross-discipline participation by Information Retrieval scientists and engineers, eDiscovery attorneys, Project Managers, and Litigation Support leaders. "We share and discuss kernels of wisdom from the best and brightest in the eDiscovery field, including experienced inside counsel, outside counsel, and eDiscovery consultants and other luminaries in the field who have contributed ideas to the Advanced E-Discovery Institute at Georgetown Law Center, The Sedona Conference, and the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM)."

eDiscovery People enable thoughtful dialogue and commentary about current issues in electronic discovery. Discussions are guided by moderators well-versed in information management and information retrieval.  eDiscovery People members hail from a global community of Information Retrieval scientists and engineers, eDiscovery attorneys, Project Managers, and Litigation Support leaders.

In addition to Discussions, there are promotions and other opportunities for professional development, including a current list of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses specific to eDiscovery-related topics.  The programs highlighted here cover the gamut of discovery strategies and obligations in light of today’s Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP).  For example, you can learn about data mapping techniques, efficacy of search terms for relevance identification, approaches to defensible targeted collections, methods for handling audio and video documents, social media, cloud computing, metadata, forensics, privacy, protective orders, and data security.
