Evolver participates in EDRM Duke Law 2017 Spring Workshop



Mimi Singh, Evolver’s Associate General Counsel and Director of eDiscovery, participates in the EDRM Duke Law workshop.



The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) is a framework that outlines standards for the recovery and discovery and of digital data. The EDRM is designed to serve as guidance for gathering and assimilating electronic data during the legal process, including criminal evidence discovery.    This EDRM Duke Law workshop will focus on advanced analytics and artificial intelligence. It also will focus on creating guidance for technology assisted review (TAR).

Analytics is a topic of interest and expertise for Mimi; she is eager to be a part of this workshop and discussion. She recently wrapped up a webinar: A Conversation with Judge Waxse on Proportionality on May 4, where she spoke on a panel discussing how proportionality is being addressed today as it relates to litigation spend and technology.



She also recently authored an Evolver blog post: Of Swamps and Alligators: Avoiding the Bite of a Poorly Executed Response for ESI where she discussed TAR as it relates to proportionality.



The EDRM Workshop will also serve as a launching pad for EDRM, now under the direction of Duke Law and attendees will hear from EDRM and Duke Law leaders on the future of EDRM.



Bruce Markowitz, Vice President of eDiscovery, Evolver said, “EDRM is the court recognized eDiscovery workflow and also a key resource to the judicial changes. Evolver finds it very important to be an active participant in helping EDRM shape the future of eDiscovery through their educational events.”

What is EDRM?

EDRM is a community of eDiscovery and legal professionals who create practical resources to improve e-discovery and information governance. As technology radically transforms litigation and the legal profession, EDRM members collaboratively develop vital frameworks, standards, educational tools, and other resources to guide the adoption and use of e-discovery technologies.
