In 2016, the non-profit Electronic Discovery Institute (EDI) introduced a program called the Distance Learning Initiative. Aimed at promoting general e-discovery awareness, the initiative focused on providing introductory-level modules for new practitioners at a $1 price point, with a certificate of completion at the end.
But a year into the program, EDI wanted something a bit more in depth, and a partner in exploring that advanced learning. Enter an organization that has placed a lot of emphasis on e-discovery itself in recent days: Duke Law School. On Wednesday, the two announced that they were partnering on an “Advanced eDiscovery” curriculum, aimed at legal and other professionals seeking deep mastery of eDiscovery strategy and best practices in litigation.
