Get Involved, Work Towards Professional Goals
The ACEDS Mentorship Program provides opportunities for professionals across the e-discovery spectrum to better our global community through knowledge, leadership, and collaboration. Our goal-oriented program is an exclusive benefit provided to ACEDS members as a way for knowledgeable leaders in the field to usher in junior, committed newcomers. Through the Mentorship Program, ACEDS will pair individuals based on their common interests and goals, and curate relationships that promote greater opportunities for education, career development, and the betterment of the profession.

How Does Mentorship Work?
Select the appropriate application below and submit it to [email protected]. After your application is accepted, ACEDS will pair individuals for a 6-12 month program.
During this time period, paired individuals will meet on a weekly or biweekly (every other week) basis via conference or video call to check in on goal progress and collaborate on next steps. In addition to this, ACEDS Leadership will check in with a quarterly conference call to offer support and resources as needed.
