Necessary Educational Qualifications for an E-Discovery Professional
- The first and foremost thing that is necessary to become an e-discovery professional is that you need to have a background in law.
- If you are stepping into the field of e-discovery from a prior niche in the IT sector, it will be helpful for you to posses a Bachelor's Degree in Information Sciences or any of the associated subjects.
- Degrees in highly developed technologies may be a further positive factor on your resume.
- Last but not the least it needs to be mentioned that as the entire professional dimension of e-discovery is a completely novel one, hence no professional training is available in the market. Most of the preparation and guidance takes place while working or while still studying law or while attending important seminars specific to the topic.
As the professional paradigm of the e-discovery professionals is still expanding and under formulation there are no specific responsibilities. But then some of the common tasks that they need to perform are:
- The first and foremost job of an e-discovery professional is to carry out detailed assessment of the client's ESI. Thereon they have to make significant contribution in the creation of the ESI preservation policies for the clients company.
- A secondary responsibility would be to slowly and steadily train and educate the client in the context of e-discovery and the various policies in regard to it.
