3rd Annual Electronic Discovery Conference



ACEDS, a part of the leading legal education provider, BARBRI, is a membership association committed to promoting and verifying e-discovery skill and competence through training, education, and certification to organizations and individuals in order to reduce the costs and risks associated with e-discovery and realize the advantages of performing it effectively. ACEDS awards the Certified E-Discovery Specialist (CEDS) credential, which is held by practitioners at Am Law 200 firms, government agencies, including the US Securities and Exchange Commission and US Justice Department, and some of the largest corporations in the world, including General Electric, Apple, UnitedHealth, Boeing and Ford Motor Company.CEDS responds to the need to verify skill and knowledge in an increasingly high-stakes, high-risk field. It facilitates sound hiring practices, has the potential to advance careers and gives a competitive advantage both to the individuals who earn it and to their employers. By becoming CEDS certified, professionals show employers they are equipped to tackle a wide range of e-discovery challenges — and organizations show their clients and partners they are committed to performing e-discovery better, more cost-effectively and with less risk. The credential is increasingly identified by hiring managers as preferred or required in job postings.ACEDS recently forged an affinity partnership with EDRM, the leading e-discovery standards organization, with which it is working to advance the e-discovery profession through development of educational and training content. ACEDS and EDRM also offer a joint membership. For more information about ACEDS, visit ACEDS.org.



EDRM creates practical resources to improve e-discovery and information governance. Launched in May 2005, EDRM was established to address the lack of standards and guidelines in the e-discovery market. In January 2006, EDRM published the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, followed by additional resources such as IGRM, CARRM and the Talent Task Matrix. Since its launch, EDRM has comprised 313 organizations, including 184 service and software providers, 71 law firms, 44 corporations, 7 governmental entities, 3 industry groups and 4 educational institutions involved with e-discovery and information governance.
