Gained Deep Understanding
Gordon D. Cruse, Esq., Certified Family Law Specialist
If anyone needs to gain an in depth understanding of the e-discovery process then this is the course I would definitely recommend. Thanks to this course I have gained a deep understanding of how to manage an e-discovery project, I have become aware of issues to consider at each stage of the process and I have enhanced my functional knowledge of how to collect, process, review and produce electronically stored information.
Michael's Course is a Must
Joe Maio, California Department of Justice, Technical Support Staff
Michael Arkfeld's breadth of knowledge on the universe of ESI law, and his ability to practically and clearly communicate that knowledge, made the information presented in his online eDiscovery and Digital Evidence Course (and related publications) both easily attainable and immediately applicable to our day to day case management and office operations. Not only did Michael open our eyes to the liability issues related to ESI, but through his tips and advice for on the ground application, Michael also changed the way we practice law. Whether a seasoned attorney, a new admitted to the bar, or simply as one who is collaterally involved where legal discovery and ESI are at issue, Michael's course is a must.
Exactly What I Was Looking For
This is exactly what I was looking for in content, and the written materials and convenient learning environment greatly exceeded my expectations. I am a judge in California who has encountered ESI issues, and I became convinced that neither I nor most of the attorneys before me know much about the subject. This class has helped me tremendously in developing an understanding and working knowledge of the area, and the written materials will be extremely helpful in the future. While my enthusiasm would lead me to publicly endorse the course and provide a testimonial, my ethical obligations do not -- which is why I answered the next question "no" (next question was "Can we use your name with your comments?")
Best Online eDiscovery Course Available
Rob Robinson, Orange Legal Technologies
I believe you have the best online eDiscovery course available. I have searched for other eDiscovery courses when preparing discovery requests and have not found anything else that compares to yours. Wonderful course and extremely beneficial. As a person who has to explain eDiscovery to other litigation staff and to clients, this course has provided a basis of terminology and structure to eDiscovery, which helps me to educate others.
Education resource of choice.
The treatise has become the textbook of choice for the the federal and California Departments of Justice, law schools and has been purchased by more than 10,000 of the top law firms, corporations, service bureaus, government organizations, law schools and libraries across the country.
Relevant, clear, to the point.

Michael is relevant and on point. He communicates clearly. His materials are excellent.
Great speaker, great format.
Georgetown eDiscovery Training evaluator
Michael Arkfeld was the perfect speaker on this important topic. The format worked well because it meshed the various written materials.
Great exposure to the real world of electronic discovery
Evan Benjamin, IT Specialist and former Master Course student
This course forced me to view eDiscovery from a litigator's point of view and has actually got me interested in going to law school and eventually become a Special Master like Judge Facciola or Craig Ball. I am hoping to contribute my IT expertise in some manner to future cohorts of this course and I would like to keep up with all of Michael Arkfeld's publications and courses. Thanks for a great exposure to the real world of electronic discovery and also for making this course intellectually challenging and interactive.
Michael Arkfeld is a superb educator
Deborah Balbour, Paralegal and former Master Course student
I highly recommend this course. Michael Arkfeld is a superb educator. His treatises are an invaluable tool for learning and referencing in practice. I believe the interactive online platform of the course promotes an ability to grasp real situations and many nuances of working in all phases of eDiscovery litigation.
The course successfully bridges the gap between IT and the law
Barbara Ann Johnson-Stokes, Esq.
This course prepares an attorney with the foundational knowledge regarding ESI that is necessary to have in order to avoid sanctions, ethical issues and malpractice claims when it comes to handling a case involving ESI. The course successfully bridges the gap between IT (Information Technology) and the law in such a way that makes it easily understandable as well as enjoyable.
I stumbled upon this course and am so fortunate that I did. I highly recommend it.
