The Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario “ILCO” is pleased to offer the eDiscovery Fellowship course to its members and to the legal community.

Designed for litigation support professionals and law clerks, this course will explore the legal and practical principles of electronic discovery in a legal practice context. Using the Electronic Discovery Reference Model and the Sedona Canada Principles, we will discuss the issues and tasks underlying each phase of the process. With an emphasis on proportionality and defensibility at every stage, practical information will be covered, including cooperative discovery planning, the supporting evidence required for discovery motions, and the admissibility of evidence. We will cover how to best work in a cost-effective manner and bring value to the legal team and client.

The course instructor is Crystal O’Donnell, founder of Heuristica Discovery Counsel Professional Corporation. A litigation law background is highly recommended for this course.

Students will be evaluated on the basis of one final examination to be written at the ILCO Education Centre.
