The Launch of a Law Student E-Discovery Website


Listen to Karl Schieneman, Director of Analytics and Review with JurInnov talk with the Honorable Shira Scheindlin from the Southern District of NY and the Honorable Paul Grimm from the District Court of Maryland along with two law students who accepted my challenge to build Due to the efforts of Hunter McMahon and Alex Shusterman, we now have a website that enables law students who study electronic discovery and/or have technical backgrounds to develop their electronic discovery ideas, market themselves and get jobs or clerkships.  This approach helps students and law firms who may have limited resources to learn more about opportunities in the electronic discovery field.

Hunter and Alex are both law students who put forth significant time and effort designing the website, writing code and working with me to make the idea a reality. Join us on this show as we learn more about how can help both law students and law firms find each other and come up with ways to work together. If you like this show, forward it to your local law school or local bar association and let them know that this free resource exists. Together, this idea can help the field continue to grow by tapping into ideas from the next generation of lawyers who, by the way, are more tech savvy than today’s generation of lawyers.
