In this episode of The Robert Half Legal Report, Charles Volkert, the executive director of Robert Half Legal, and Joel Wuesthoff, a director with Protiviti Inc., discuss how corporate legal departments are proactively managing e-discovery while limiting risks and containing costs. They share key findings from Future Law Office, Robert Half Legal’s annual research program that examines important developments in the legal field.
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.
