I think that law students should be getting more exposure and training on e-discovery issues. It seems like having this expertise would really help in the current job market. A recent post on Law.com’s Legal Technology News blog discusses education and certification in e-discovery. The full post is here.
“At least anecdotally, there is much demand for formal training. There are a good handful of educational opportunities, such as the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists, Organization of Legal Professionals, and Association of Litigation Support Professionals.”
It seems to me that law schools could be contributing to help build these important skills for the next generation of lawyers. This would be a great elective course to add to the curriculum.
