Technology competence requirements are on the rise. Thirty-eight states now require lawyers to understand technology. The CEDS credential can help protect against the legal, professional, and reputational hazards that ESI issues can pose. It responds to the need for an objective, verifiable measurement of skill in an area of high risk and cost.

This certification answers the call for professionals with diverse skills and knowledge of the entire eDiscovery spectrum. It also serves as a competitive advantage for your firm, both as an incentive for potential hires as well as a career advancement opportunity to existing staff.
