The course was conceived and put together by Maggi Healey, a former litigator who now specialises in e-disclosure at The Review People. From the beginning, the course was designed to offer students practical software experience across a full range of e-disclosure tasks from document review to quality control.
Jon Chan, Director of Technical Services at Anexsys, will serve as instructor for the course’s software modules.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be part of this ground-breaking course for the next generation of lawyers,” Chan said. “It seems Generation Y is expected to have a strong foundation in technology and it’s often underappreciated how difficult it can be to grasp the sheer range of technical challenges presented by e-disclosure. The practical component of this course will go a long way towards preparing students for dealing with modern e-disclosure.”
In his instruction, Chan will combine experiences from his work at Anexsys, a Relativity Best in Service Premium Hosting Partner with material from kCura’s Relativity Academic Partner program, which will provide software licences for the course at no charge.
“kCura’s Relativity Academic Partner program has expanded in the US and Canada at a steady pace,” said Janice Hollman, manager of the Relativity Academic Partner program. “We are pleased to assist Queen Mary University of London as they launch their first e-disclosure course.”
The new course begins in October and lasts for eleven weeks.
