It is an industry wide, vendor neutral celebration that includes in-person educational and networking events, online webinars, CLE opportunities, white papers, social media conversation, and more. In 2017, more than 2000 e-discovery and legal professionals celebrated E-Discovery Day in 15 educational online webinars and 13 in-person events around the United States. In addition, #eDiscoveryDay reached over 683,000 people on Twitter.
“2018 Is gearing up to be the biggest E-Discovery Day celebration yet. We are excited to work with the 15 other supporting organizations to bring together the legal community to celebrate and bring more awareness to the importance of e-discovery. We encourage more organizations in the e-discovery space to join the list of supporters in this industry-wide day,” said Bill Piwonka, CMO at Exterro.
