QMUL Launches LL.M. Class in E-Disclosure

Students to receive training in the e-discovery software Relativity

Queen Mary University of London has announced that it is adding a class in e-disclosure to its LL.M. program.

Electronic disclosure, or "e-disclosure," also known as "e-discovery," refers to the discovery in legal proceedings where the information sought is in some kind of electronic form. It's a growing field, and one that presents particular challenges for legal professionals.

"At the broad level, e-disclosure presents all sorts of challenges in terms of using electronic data, this material must be properly understood if it is to be preserved and used as part of a legal case," says Ian Walden, professor at QMUL. "We are also operating in a big volume environment – the sheer amount of information that needs to be acquired, analysed, and properly accounted for is – in itself – a significant challenge.”

As part of the new class, students will receive hands-on training with the e-discovery software Relativity

For more information, please see the QMUL news release announcing the launch of the new e-disclosure class.
