DocuLex Electronic Discovery Educational Program
Winter Haven, FL - DocuLex announces the company's electronic discovery educational program offered to selected law schools, free of charge. With the release of the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure updated for electronic discovery, there is significant demand in the industry for education and understanding of these new rules. DocuLex has created this pilot program with interested law schools to help them understand how electronic discovery technology can be used to automate much of this process.
With this program the company is offering a free license with technical assistance of their electronic discovery software, Discovery Cracker, for use in the classroom for one semester, providing a valuable tool to assist with instruction of processes in electronic discovery for litigation.
Discovery Cracker easily processes terabytes of e-files and email in over 500 file formats and is used to support automated electronic discovery data processing for corporate legal departments, law firms, litigation support service bureaus and forensic consulting firms. It is ideal for matter-based discovery or proactive systemic based discovery to support corporate legal departments. Discovery Cracker supports high volume extraction of electronic file metadata and conversion of electronic data from multiple file formats. The program's function is to create databases with associated images, full-text files and metadata from email and electronic files (including Outlook, Microsoft Office, Lotus Notes and hundreds of additional file formats).
The program features enhanced job scheduling and workflow automation. It includes centralized setup of distributed processing, where batches may be added to a job queue for processing or for parallel post-processing either consecutively or at a scheduled time. Scheduling processes may be performed on batches by individual or multiple computers, while preparing subsequent projects. This feature saves time and resources, significantly lowering the overall costs associated with electronic discovery. Additional features include central monitoring of the status of jobs added to the queue as well as enhanced processing, post processing and quality control functionality.
Discovery Cracker was the first program to offer embedded file processing, providing extraction of an electronic file from within another file and most importantly preserving the Parent/Child attachment relationship in review/QC. The benefit is thorough electronic capture of content from container files of differing native formats (IE. a Microsoft Word document containing an Excel spreadsheet) and separating the embedded file from the previous multi-format location.
Discovery Cracker exports to Summation (with eDII file support), Concordance,
Ringtail and other prominent litigation information management systems and
