Rise Up as a Super Paralegal with Virtual CLE

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on January 27, 2013

As many of you know, the State Bar Imageof Texas was the first State Bar in the nation to create a separate division for paralegals.  The State Bar of Texas Paralegal Division (PD) offers the opportunity for paralegals across the state to strengthen their skills, stay connected, have a voice in the present and future of the profession, and give back to the community.

Recently, members of the Paralegal Division became involved in the Rainmakers Virtual College, a virtual semester of CLE offered by Agility, a California based paralegal service.  Rainmakers Virtual College also features speakers from the Washington Paralegal Association, Washington Limited Legal Technician Board, and the California Alliance of Paralegal Associations.  Presentations by these speakers include education on intellectual property, paralegal ethics, and paralegal compliance.

Agility offers live individual course webinars and semester course bundles.  The virtual campus utilizes real time chat capabilities with social media integration.  Click here to register or for a brief overview and guided tour through Rainmakers Virtual College campus.

CLE Webinar: Exploiting Discovery Using Early Case Assessment, Near Duplicate Detection and Concept Search Technology

Posted by PD Membership on September 7, 2010

CLE WEBINAR PRESENTED BY THE PARALEGAL DIVISION: Exploiting Discovery Using Early Case Assessment, Near Duplicate Detection and Concept Search Technology

TBLS Approved: Civil Trial Law, Family Law, and Personal Injury Trial Law

September 15, 2010  –  12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (CDT)  – (1 hour CLE)

Cost: Free for PD Members,  $30 for Non PD Members

Speaker: Ed Fiduca, Regional Vice President, INVENTUS, Dallas, TX

The sheer volume of discovery is making it virtually mandatory to automate the document review, selection, production and post-production process (i.e., deposition preparation, briefing, and trial). Not only are lawyers having to figure out how to handle the sometimes staggering volume of e-mail and other e-discovery, they`re having to figure out how to handle it in a way that is complementary to and builds on the procedures that are already in place for handling paper-based productions.

This course explores early parts of the discovery phase of complex litigation during which parties are obligated to review documents then either produce relevant documents or withhold privileged ones. During this course the presenter will compare and contrast methods for electronically searching and reviewing documents including Early Case Assessment Technology, Near Duplicate Detection, Concept Search Technology, Boolean Logic, Fuzzy, and Word Association. In addition, we will explore the use of technology in performing potential spoliation audits of documents received from opposing counsel as well as use of the search functionality during deposition or trial.
