CLE Hours:

Course Level: 
Intermediate

One of the goals of Project Management in Electronic Discovery is to blend the distinct and traditionally separate domains within law firms and legal departments into a more seamless workflow that transforms discovery into a more collaborative and efficient process. Applying the principles of project management to the discovery process—and to electronic discovery in particular—combines the roles of attorneys, paralegals and litigation support project managers into a complimentary, if not revolutionary, and vastly improved process that law firms, corporate legal and government paralegals will appreciate. In this session, Michael Quartararo, the Director of Litigation Support Services at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP and the author of the 2016 book Project Management in Electronic Discovery, will focus on how paralegals can and should be involved in e-discovery projects, how to marshal the necessary resources, and how to manage processes that lead to successful outcomes in modern-day discovery projects. Attendees will gain an understanding of the basic principles of project management and insight into the best practices in e-discovery—skills and practices that may be put to use on day one upon return to their offices.
