Although the Canadian ediscovery industry is maturing, there is a continual struggle for the expansion and development of professional skills for ediscovery and litigation support teams. While industry organizations and vendors have filled some gaps in terms of certifications and setting industry standards, the broader challenge relates to important cultural and organizational shifts for law firms. They are often challenged to establish a clear vision for these critical areas and determine how they relate to overall firm strategy.

This session will provide you with practical tips and strategies for sourcing, developing and retaining quality talent as well as insight into how to develop a long-term plan that will impact the role of law clerks and paralegals in the firm. Learn how to improve performance, drive efficiency and advance the role of law clerks and paralegals so that they can work seamlessly with the practice groups and deliver cost-effective solutions to your clients.
