EDRM at Duke Law School has created an advisory council composed of EDRM members, lawyers, judges, in-house counsel, and other industry professionals to help guide the organization’s ongoing projects and planning.
The Advisory Council immediately takes on guidace for a number of new and ongoing projects relating to TAR; GDPR; information governance and updating the IGRM; proportionality in litigation discovery; computer science and stopwords; privilege logs; and artificial intelligence. The group also will advise on the continuing update and revision fo the EDRM model and e-discovery maturity assessment tools.
Descriptions of these projects can be found at the EDRM website: https://www.edrm.net/projects/.
Each EDRM project is led by an EDRM member and supported by the volunteer efforts of EDRM committee members. Since its inception in 2005, EDRM has relied on the support, expertise, talent and time of its members, who work together to create practical resources for advancing and improving e-discovery and information governance.
“EDRM is only as good as the depth and breadth of its participants,” said Jim Waldron, director of EDRM. “We are very grateful to these individuals for their willingness to serve on this council, for their dedication to EDRM, and for their willingness to meaningfully contribute to EDRM’s efforts to improve e-discovery and information governance tools and resources for the benefit of the entire legal community. We are constantly seeking out members of the e-discovery community to join us in ensuring that we represent the views and knowledge of that community, and I’m so pleased that this group has answered the call.”
EDRM welcomes new members and participants on its projects. Information on EDRM membership and sponsorship may be found at https://www.edrm.net/join/. To volunteer on a specific project, contact Jim Waldron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
