IRVINE, Calif. – February 19, 2014 – University of California, Irvine Extension launches two new four-week online courses which focus on the foundational and practical knowledge needed for navigating critical software in legal technology.

Courses are designed for attorneys, paralegals, litigation support personnel, legal secretaries and case managers – allowing participants to meet the evolving challenges of delivering legal services in the digital age. Registration is now open for both courses.
“Being able to fully master software critical in the legal industry will provide participants the ability to maintain a competitive advantage in this job market,” said Tom Pokladowski, Esq., director of law, finance and business programs at UC Irvine Extension. “With course instructor, Kyre Stucklin’s extensive experience in practicing and training litigation technology, course attendees will have the benefit of receiving hands-on instruction from a professional well versed in Concordance and CaseMap.”
Fundamentals of Concordance, offered from March 10 through April 6, focuses on how to manage the information produced in the discovery process using Concordance to organize, review, search, and produce litigation documents that are scanned or electronic.
