One of the coolest things about E-Discovery Day is how it takes a moment to shine the spotlight on some of the unsung heroes of the litigation process and justice system--e-discovery professionals. Interestingly enough (and as something that past E-Discovery Day surveys have revealed, the vast majority of e-discovery professionals don't start their careers in the field--they find their way by being assigned to e-discovery tasks or taking them on, finding they have an aptitude for it, and then building a career.
That career path is one reason why E-Discovery Day, and in particular our partners at ACEDS, give out two CEDS certification scholarships as a thank you for the people who participate in our E-Discovery Day survey. This year, our two lucky winners are:
- Susana Garcia, Consilio - ACEDS eDiscovery Executive Certificate
- Tim Pramas, University of Minnesota - ACEDS CEDS Certification
We're excited for you both to enjoy these great prizes--and thank you to all who participated in the survey.
Of course, E-Discovery Day has plenty of opportunities to learn about interesting topics in e-discovery, but this year we're actually starting the learning early. On November 16th, at 1 pm ET/10 am PT, Exterro is hosting a webinar that really focuses on building a career in e-discovery, and using E-Discovery Day as an opportunity to do so. Advancing Your E-Discovery Career: How to Leverage E-Discovery Day to Its Fullest will feature a great conversation between Mike Quartararo, President of ACEDS, Mary Mack, CEO of EDRM, and Khrys McKinney and Michael Potters, two E-Discovery Recruiters.
Make sure you register today and get a head start on building your e-discovery career!
