Providing an innovative response to the evolving legal market, Cumberland School of Law opened the eDiscovery Institute and Review Center in partnership with cicayda, a Nashville, Tennessee-based company. The eDiscovery Institute and Review Center, located in the law school’s Lucille Beeson Law Library, assists students in legal technology and provides new opportunities in the marketplace. Recent law school graduates as well as experienced lawyers staff the center.
The partnership between cicayda and Cumberland provides an unprecedented opportunity to bring cutting edge legal technology into the law school. It provides Cumberland graduates with employment, and experience with fast-changing 21st-century legal systems. It also provides students and faculty unmatched opportunities to engage with and understand the role of technology in the legal system.
In connection with the Center, cicayda and the Cumberland School of Law will collaborate on new courses and certificate programs in areas such as technology, information governance, compliance, project management and eDiscovery. Cumberland School of Law and cicayda also may work together on CLE programs designed to educate practicing lawyers in these same areas.
The eDiscovery Institute and Review Center marks an historic, immediate step into the future of legal education and a better-managed review opportunity for corporations and law firms needing outsourced eDiscovery or contract review. It features a state-of-the-art review facility with the latest technology, an expert project management staff and top security.
