Aug. 25 — The Duke University School of Law and Electronic Discovery Reference Model have joined forces to expand educational efforts in legal technology and promote awareness and understanding of the judicial process.
EDRM is a leading standards organization for the eDiscovery market, providing frameworks and practical guidance for electronic discovery and information governance.
Duke's Center for Judicial Studies provides programs aimed at improving the administration of justice through study and education.
George Socha, co-founder of EDRM, told Bloomberg BNA Aug. 24 that the ultimate goal of both EDRM and Duke is to promote and ensure a fair process and avoid costly eDiscovery related surprises, errors and disagreements that crop up during litigation, “as a result of different views by judges and case teams.”
EDRM wants to continue the work of the Center for Judicial Studies in building a common shared understanding on all sides.
“Not only will the Center add new experienced and prominent practitioners to our discussions, but it will also bring the input and insights of academics and judges who have participated in the Center’s eDiscovery projects,” John Rabiej, the Center's director, told Bloomberg BNA Aug. 24.
The acquisition will hopefully lead to continued growth in the development of standards, guidelines and best practices in eDiscovery and information governance, according to EDRM co-founder Tom Gelbmann. Duke can contribute to that goal by providing the resources and expertise to continue the development of materials and programs “supporting Duke/EDRM's position as the ‘go to' source for the legal community,” Gelbmann told Bloomberg BNA Aug. 24.
Both organizations are looking to take advantage of the rich perspectives provided from Duke's participants from the judiciary, education and government, which will complement those of the EDRM audience.
The interchange of ideas and efforts broadens the understanding and abilities of the combined organizations, Socha explained.
