Why Join EDRM?

EDRM is a community of e-discovery and legal professionals who create practical resources to improve e-discovery and information governance. As technology radically transforms litigation and the legal profession, EDRM members collaboratively develop vital frameworks, standards, educational tools, and other resources to guide the adoption and use of e-discovery technologies.

EDRM members help shape the legal profession’s technological evolution and are widely recognized as leaders and experts in e-discovery. In 2018, the EDRM team will release guidelines for Technology-Assisted Review (TAR) and guidelines for handling cross-border discovery under GDPR. We’ll also be developing new and updated content to support and expand on the EDRM model and a new template for assessing proportionality in discovery.

Specific EDRM membership benefits for organizations (businesses, law firms, vendors) and individuals (individual lawyers, scholars, sole practitioners, etc.) are listed below, as are the membership fees associated with each membership. Membership is renewable annually. Note that we offer reciprocal discounted memberships for ACEDS members and discounts for Women in E-Discovery members and students.
