eDiscovery within Law School Curricula?

Posted by Johnny Lee on May 19, 2010

It appears that the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law will offer an online, three-credit course in Summer 2010 entitled Introduction to Electronic Discovery.  The course content and format is designed by noted eDiscovery pundit Ralph Losey, who collaborated with the faculty to achieve this milestone of legal education.  Per Losey’s e-Discovery Team blog,the course includes video lectures from top experts in this field as well as interactive student exercises, fora for professor-student interaction, and even an online mid-term oral exam.

Losey continues to demonstrate strong thought leadership in this space, and his entrepreneurial proclivities shine through in spades here as well.  He is marketing this to any law school in the country, provided a local attorney will step up and act as a professor for the student assistance required during the course delivery.  This is a great achievement, and it represents a recognition of the importance of this field to legal scholarship and practice.
