Key Skills for E-Discovery Professionals

In developing this year’s programme we thought about the key skills or knowledge areas which are essential for a well-rounded e-discovery professional. The 5 key skills which we identified are as follows:


a)  Project management, including risk management and costs management
b)  Managing the e-discovery team, including legal professionals, technical experts and client personnel
c)  Project initiation and data preservation
d)  Identifying and obtaining electronic evidence
e)  Searching, reducing and reviewing electronic evidence

In the printed conference programme specific sessions will be highlighted which relate to each of these key skills. This mapping of conference sessions to skills will be particularly apparent in the afternoon split track where the majority of sessions relate to one or more of the key skills.
