Who Should Take an eDiscovery Course?
We firmly believe that your entire eDiscovery team and organization (attorneys, paralegals, litigation and IT support staff, and other legal professionals) who "touch" eDiscovery matters should have access to the same testing and eDiscovery instructional content. For this reason, we have designed our courses and low subscription rates for a group (law firm, government unit, corporate office, etc.) for all EDEC on-demand instructional content which includes a team eDiscovery assessment. The test is separated into legal and IT issues that will arise in your cases.

Group subscription pricing provides access for your members to all on-demand courses for one low monthly price.

Which is the Best Course for You?
Every litigator and person in your organization who "touches" a matter involving "electronically stored information" should take a "basic" eDiscovery course. Often, I hear of stories of legal professionals, for example, who fail to recognize "triggering" legal hold events and the ensuing court sanctions that follow.
Depending How Your eDiscovery Team is "structured" and the different team member roles will be factors in choosing a particular course.
What is the Difference Between a "Basic" and "Advanced" Course?
The primary difference between the "basic" and "advanced" Legal issues and IT Courses is the length of the videos and additional readings. The critical issues under both Courses are covered, though in more detail in the "advanced" series.
COST: The good news is that you will not have to choose between the "basic" and "advanced" courses based on cost. The subscription rate includes all on-demand courses on the EDEC web site, except for the Master Course.
Do You Offer eDiscovery Certifications?
Yes! We offer Basic, Advanced and Master eDiscovery Certificates.

What should I do if I am having technical issues?
