What is your educational background?
I received my associate’s in paralegal studies from Ivy Tech Community College. I passed the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam in 2016, becoming a registered paralegal, and I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree at IUPUI.
Why did you become involved with the IndyBar E-Discovery, Information Governance & Cybersecurity Section Executive Committee?
I completed an e-ciscovery course during my undergraduate studies and I have been hooked ever since. When I discovered the section, I immediately joined.
In what other ways are you involved with the legal community?
In addition to serving on the E-Discovery, Information Governance & Cybersecurity Section Executive Committee, I am the Continuing Legal Education Director of the Indiana Paralegal Association and a member of the IndyBar Paralegal Executive Committee. I have found my involvement with these organizations to be professionally rewarding and a great way to expand my network.
What are you looking forward to in 2019 with the E-Discovery, Information Governance & Cybersecurity Section?
I am excited for the upcoming May 21 Race Into E-Discovery CLE. I am the host for this quarter’s CLE, which will be presented by Kyle R. Campbell. Kyle is an e-discovery and Litigation Support professional with LOGICFORCE and Krieg DeVault. Kyle will start off looking at where analytics usage fits within the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) framework. Kyle will display analytics tools in a review platform and explore scenarios in which analytics can improve the eDiscovery workflow. Kyle promises to “keep the technical jargon to a minimum and really hone in on core features and depict real-world situations with which analytics can assist case teams.” “We’ll make the concepts behind analytics more accessible and we’ll arm the audience with some base information they can use to identify situations or needs that analytics can better address vis-à-vis conventional document review methodologies,” said Kyle.
