Evolve Discovery maintains active involvement in industry standard eDiscovery organizations, such as the Electronic Discovery Reference Model and The Sedona Conference®. We participate in these and other industry groups in order to maintain our leadership in the eDiscovery Industry.
Association of Litigation Support Professional
The Association of Litigation Support Professional is the only eDiscovery organization that comprises the full range of the litigation support industry. ALSP strives to develop a coalition of cross-functional litigation support team members capable of supporting globally accepted standards and certification, mentoring and community-building across all sectors of the field.
Electronic Discovery Institute
The Electronic Discovery Institute is a non-profit eDiscovery organization dedicated to resolving electronic discovery challenges by conducting studies of litigation processes that incorporate modern technologies. The dramatic increase in volume of ESI and the complexity of its discovery overwhelms the litigation process and the justice system. Technology and efficient processes can ease the impact of electronic discovery, or so we hope.
Electronic Discovery Reference Model
The Electronic Discovery Reference Model was launched in May 2005 and created to address the lack of standards and guidelines in the electronic discovery market. The reference model provides a general, flexible and extensible framework for the development, selection, evaluation and use of eDiscovery products and services. Its unofficial motto: Establishing guidelines. Setting standards. Delivering resources.
Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS)
The Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS) is a national, non-partisan eDiscovery organization dedicated to improving the process and culture of the civil justice system. eDiscovery costs and processes are often analyzed in their reports and publications. IAALS provides leadership and conducts comprehensive, objective research and develops innovative and practical solutions.
