WASHINGTON, DC, September 15, 2014 – Logikcull announced today the launch of its e-Discovery Education for Everyone initiative. With this initiative, lawyers around the world will be able to learn e-discovery by performing e-discovery, for free, and without the need for special software or hardware. Simply log-in and Logikcull will automatically teach you how to do e-discovery. Each free Logikcull account comes with a set of “sandbox-data” that lawyers can use to learn about metadata, de-duplication, and many other technical aspects of e-discovery.
Understanding e-discovery is becoming increasingly important to the legal community. For instance, California has an open ethics opinion that states lawyers that don’t attempt to learn about e-discovery may face malpractice claims. The Logikcull e-Discovery Education for Everyone initiative hopes to mitigate that risk for attorneys everywhere.
“E-discovery education is vital for lawyers practicing in the 21st century—which is to say, all of us. The time is nigh when not understanding e-discovery will be malpractice; but why wait until then? If you want to remain competitive and competent, you’d better know about it now.” said Mark Wilson, writer for Findlaw.com who recently wrote about “Is Not Understanding e-Discovery Unethical?”
One of the problems with learning about e-discovery is just that: you learn about it in the very traditional CLE-way. But usually, you don’t actually get to practice e-discovery until it’s too late. And if it’s too late, you may end up making poor e-discovery choices that can result in professional misconduct. With Logikcull, lawyers can learn e-discovery by doing e-discovery in a safe and real-world environment. This learn-by-doing environment will better prepare legal professionals when e-discovery demands arise.
“The bottom line is, you can no longer dodge e-discovery or say it is not relevant to you and your practice,” said Susan Cartier Liebel, Founder & CEO & Solo Practice University. “Given the use of technological devices, cloud services by almost everyone as well as storage, every legal matter has potential for e-discovery issues. And to not know e-discovery may ‘render an attorney ethically incompetent to handle’ certain cases even if they are otherwise highly competent to do so is an alarming wake-up call according to a recently proposed California ethics opinion.”
Along with an automated e-discovery training exercise, lawyers can access dozens of e-discovery educational videos in Logikcull like, “What’s a good QC checklist for document productions?” and “How do I make a native file document production?” Legal professionals can also upload their own training data to Logikcull (maximum of 100MB) to create unique e-discovery scenarios.
