Everyone rasie their hand if they have ever heard of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM)…
The EDRM project is an effort to create standards and guidelines around the electronic discovery process. George J. Socha of Socha Consulting LLC and Tom Gelbmann of Gelbmann & Associates has done extensive work creating this model.
The reason I ask is I’m not sure those people that should know about it is aware of it. I just spent a week meeting with ten of the largest law firms on the east coast and not one of the many attorneys or associates I asked had ever heard of it.
I’m not sure what the answer is short of law schools actually spending some time on it, but if you get a chance take a look at it.
