Better Ways to Train on Litigation Support and eDiscovery Applications - Ethan Hirsch

Posted by ilta on 7th May 2019

As eDiscovery and litigation support professionals, training end users can become an important part of your job. Most of us don’t have teaching experience, but the better you are at training, the easier the rest of your job will be. A well-trained review team leads to a smooth production;  a well-trained trial team leads to fewer midnight phone calls. In this snackable podcast series we talked to three lit support professionals with strong training skills. Holland & Knight has developed an admirable training program on Relativity for their reviewers – we spoke to Kristen Wiwczar about what she’s learned from teaching others. Jessica Carter of Driven helps Driven’s corporate and law firm clients develop workflows and best practices on One, Relativity and Brainspace – she has insights on keeping users engaged and how law firm lit support staff can supplement vendor training.  Ethan Hirsch of Ipro trains his customers on Trial Director and the Ipro suite of eDiscovery tools -  he spoke about going onsite during the pre-trial crunch and what’s different about training for trial.

Posted by ilta on 17th December 2012

The legal profession is a unique environment filled with high expectations, complex concepts and distinctive cultures that can make the learning curve for someone new a bit more like a learning canyon. In order to succeed, it’s important to understand the nuances that are ingrained in the business of law. Enter the “Law Firm 101” initiative –– a program that aims to educate and prepare law students/new lawyers and incoming legal IT professionals about the business of law … the business they’re in. ILTA held a “virtual roundtable” with three member thought leaders to get their insight into how the main points of this initiative are applicable to our members. Our interview with  Meredith Williams, Director of Knowledge Management at Baker Donelson, can be heard in its entirety on the accompanying podcast.
