Women in eDiscovery is an organization that brings together women around the world who are interested in technology related to the legal industry. Its goal is to provide opportunities for its members to grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support, and recognition of achievements.
Women in eDiscovery members are women who work within the legal industry, including general counsel, partners, associates, chief operating officers, paralegals, litigation support, and eDiscovery professionals. Membership is free, and its executive board, regional directors and chapter officers operate on a 100 percent volunteer basis.
Local chapters typically hold an educational session, some CLE-accredited, each month, and the national board organizes larger events around major legal technology trade shows and association meetings throughout the year.
