Law School Students on E-Discovery With Judge Grimm

electronic discovery law school

This was a special ESIBytes program with Judge Paul Grimm, Magistrate Judge for the United States District Court of Maryland co-hosting this show with Karl Schieneman, Director of Analytics and Review at JurInnov. We interviewed 8 law students who have been taking electronic discovery courses at three different law schools: The University of Florida, The University of Texas and The University of Alabama. On a number of podcasts we have heard from E-Discovery analysts and participants, such as Judge Scheindlin and Ralph Losey, that law students perhaps represent the future saviors of the Electronic Discovery field. Well now we give a group of students who have been studying this topic in their law schools a chance to weigh in on the topic.

How practical is it for the profession to count on this next generation of lawyer to help the profession deal with ESI is one of the topics we will discuss. Also, how valuable is Electronic Discovery as a course offering at a law school will be discussed. You be the judge as we finally give law students a chance to weigh in on a special edition of ESIBytes. If you are interested in getting in touch with the law students or talking to them about employment opportunities, their contact information is below:
