AUSTIN, TEXAS, US, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CLE Companion, a fully accredited and virtual continuing legal education provider, announced today that it is partnering with the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists (ACEDS).
Reflecting that intention, CLE Companion also announced a compelling slate of eDiscovery courses.
The three ACEDS courses, which focus on hot topics in eDiscovery, are:
- “Risks and Responsibilities: Ethics in eDiscovery”
- “Developing a Proposed TAR Framework”
- “Now What? Cross-Border and International Discovery Post Schrems II”
ACEDS is the world’s leading educational organization specializing in training and certification in e-discovery, information governance, and related legal disciplines. ACEDS provides training, certification and professional development courses to law firms, corporate legal departments, service providers, the government, and institutions of higher learning.
ACEDS is also a professional member association with 2500 active members who gather and network in 26 chapters formed in major U.S. cities, Canada, Ireland, the U.K., Benelux, and South Africa. Since 2010, ACEDS has offered the legal community the only psychometrically sound e-discovery certification exam. Qualified candidates who pass the rigorous examination earn the right to use the Certified E-Discovery Specialist (CEDS™) credential.
By exploring a partnership with CLE Companion, ACEDS hopes to expand the value of its membership, giving its professionals another compelling reason to belong to the association.
“The ability to make CLE a convenient option for our members is a very exciting opportunity,” said Mike Quartararo, President of ACEDS, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. “In CLE Companion, we have found the perfect partner that has the flexibility in the future to create a custom offering that meets the needs of our organization and our members.”
Kristin Davidson, the CEO and founder of CLE Companion, recognized early on that the pandemic was going to change the way legal professionals consume CLE, after it became problematic for them to travel and attend in-person conferences.
“We have experienced tremendous growth as legal associations have looked for alternative ways to help their members satisfy their CLE requirement,” said Davidson, noting the recent partnership CLE Companion announced with the SBPA as an example.
