Sham Exam? The Controversy over E-Discovery Certification

 

Providers are now offering certification courses and tests for e-discovery workers. Critics charge that the programs target the most vulnerable members of the legal community, advocates say they are a step in the right direction to provide better education and standards.  On the August edition of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay (editor of Law Technology News) discusses the controversy with attorneys Patrick Oot, of Washington, D.C.’s eDiscovery Institute, and Albert Barsocchini, a San Francisco-based e-discovery consultant.
