Prove Your Expertise with Everlaw Product Certification

by Rachel Beyer

The legal profession is in a moment of significant technological transformation. Today, legal’s transition to the cloud is well on its way, with 95% of the profession reporting that cloud-based ediscovery technology is or will soon be the industry standard, while leaders in technological adoption show significant benefits over those who lag behind. And as the profession embraces the cloud, generative AI tools promise to upend traditional ways of practicing law. Meanwhile, powerful analytical tools, from predictive coding to concept clustering to data visualization, are transforming the way litigators make sense of todays’ data

Keeping track of the latest developments on your own can be difficult – mastering these new tools, even more so.

We’re here to change that.

Picking the Best Ediscovery Certifications for You and Your Team

Users can pursue individual learning paths or group them together for advanced certifications. For example, users newer to Everlaw and ediscovery technology who are focused largely on document review, might decide to begin their program with a reviewer certification alone. Those managing larger projects may pursue a data ops certification, while technologists interested in artificial intelligence get Everlaw AI certified. 

But the program does not end with individual topic areas. Combine reviewer and data operations certifications for a project manager certification, or pursue them all for a litigation support manager certification.
