Exterro Inc., the preferred provider of Legal GRC software specifically designed for in-house legal, privacy, and IT teams at Global 2000 and AmLaw 200 organizations, in partnership with the Association for Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), and eDiscovery Today are pleased to announce the eighth annual celebration of E-Discovery Day will take place on December 1, 2022.
E-Discovery Day is an annual event in which the e-discovery industry comes together to celebrate the vital and growing role that e-discovery plays in the legal process. It is an industry-wide, vendor-neutral celebration started and spearheaded by Exterro that includes in-person educational and networking events, online webinars, CLE opportunities, social media conversation, and more. E-Discovery Day was started in 2015 by Exterro as an opportunity for legal professionals from around the world to come together to learn, network, and celebrate the important role they play in the legal process.
Exterro is excited to partner again with ACEDS and EDRM, whose strong connections to the e-discovery community help both build excitement for the event and ensure that educational activities provide real value to attendees, as well as with eDiscovery Today, the only daily go-to resource for eDiscovery and eDisclosure professionals seeking to keep up with trends, best practices, and case law.
“The past two and a half years have made it challenging for e-discovery professionals to connect and learn from each other, which makes events like this all the more important,” said Exterro Chief Marketing Officer Bill Piwonka.
“E-Discovery Day has become a mainstay on the eDiscovery calendar every year with its unique combination of educational sessions and unique and fun networking events,” said Doug Austin, Editor of eDiscovery Today. “eDiscovery Today is excited and honored to partner with Exterro, EDRM, and ACEDS in celebrating the eighth annual E-Discovery Day!”
Mary Mack, CEO and Chief Legal Technologist of EDRM, said, “EDRM is proud of our trusted partner, Exterro, for creating our very own E-Discovery holiday where we can learn, gather, and celebrate with each other. EDRM, a proud sponsor of E-Discovery Day, will once again host the Gayle O’Connor Spirit Award and an EDRM panel this year on December 1st.”
Mike Quartararo, president of ACEDS, added, “Every year on this day we aim to recognize the hard-working souls who power the legal discovery process and drive the creative and innovative processes that lead to successful client outcomes.”
