eDiscovery for the Non-Legal Professional

January 16, 2020 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

In today’s digital world, almost everything leaves an electronic footprint.  This allows for attorneys in litigation to dig through more evidence than ever, known as eDiscovery. 

Because of how rapidly technology develops, non-legal professionals should be aware of the nuances of eDiscovery to help their clients.  An overview of eDiscovery will be presented wth a short scenario to illustrate how eDiscovery works in litigation.

eDiscovery for the Non-Legal Professional

Christine Stansall began her legal career after graduating from UC San Diego and obtaining her paralegal certificate from University of San Diego’s ABA-approved program in 1995. In her 20 years a paralegal, she went on to earn the Certified Paralegal and Advanced Certified Paralegal certifications in multiple areas of law from the National Association of Legal Assistants, and the California Advanced Specialist in Discovery from the Commission for Certification of California Paralegals.

Ms. Stansall’s traditional paralegal career evolved into E-Discovery and litigation support when she found she enjoyed combining tech know-how with her legal training. In 2015, she earned the title of ACEDS Fellow from the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists program through UC Irvine’s E-Discovery program, then followed up with the CEDS credential in 2017. Currently, she is the Litigation Support Analyst at Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch where she assists the legal teams in every phase of litigation, from legal holds, collections, early case assessments, document review, productions, motions practice, to trial presentations. Ms. Stansall is trained to use Relativity, Eclipse, CaseMap, TextMap, TimeMap, Trial Director, Excel, Adobe Acrobat, and PowerPoint. She advocates for using project management principles in E-Discovery processes for defensibility and proportionality in a matter.

Ms. Stansall is a member of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists and the San Diego chapter of the Women in Ediscovery. She is on the advisory board for the UC San Diego Extension’s E-Discovery and Litigation Technology program. She regularly attends the monthly San Diego ESI Forum sessions and believes in always learning because litigation is always evolving.
