Excellent Course You’ve Just Got to Take: EDiscovery for Techies

IStock_000007271896Small[1] There's not much out there in the way of specific eDiscovery training for those with expert litigation support, technology or IT skills.   That is, until OLP came up with a fantastic course: EDiscovery for Techies.

I am most impressed by the lead instructor, Bill Gallivan, of Digital War Room.  Bill and his colleagues have come with with a course that takes into consideration that techies know everything there is to know about technology but need to learn – in the manner that they learn – the relevant parts of eDiscovery that are particularly applicable to their position.

The course is 8 weeks and meets twice a week for two hours each course.  If your serious about getting ahead in your career, you need to consider this important time investment. It's all online and by using a webcam (I got mine at Best Buy for $24.95), you interact with the instructor and other students.  If you miss a class, you can take the recorded version.  Better hurry, though, because the course starts on July 19th.  Right now, OLP is offering a two-for-one tuition – two people for only 495.00.  It's a great deal.

The course is a "doozy" as my father used to say.  Here is part of the syllabus:

Week #                                Topic

1 Introduction to Legal Terminology
2 RULES:Civil Procedure and Discovery Process  + Federal Rules – Meet and Confer, Conflicts and Interests, Ethical considerations

In fact, even if you're not such a techie, the course outline looks absolutely fantastic.  Register now because the course starts on July 19th.  The more you know, the better you get…..

I really enjoy working with this company. I’ve been working directly with Brett and he’s awesome. Super responsive and works hard to find something for you. He also doesn’t give up on you so if something ends up not working out he’ll get right back to trying to find you something. I’ve really felt supported every step of the way and recommend Estrin Legal Staffing 100%.

I can't say enough good things about this staffing company, and in particular Madeline Weissman. She was more thorough and organized than any other recruiter I have worked with in the past. She spelled out everything to be successful during the interview process to make it super easy to be a successful candidate. Do not hesitate to reach out to them (specifically to Madeline!) or to apply for any openings Estrin posts. Thank you Madeline for being so on top of everything!!
