Legal holds course was a great provider of insight on how plaintiffs, defendants and third parties should approach the legal hold process to avoid claims willful deprivation and subsequent sanctions.

Very useful summation of the varying aspects of legal holds. Better than most treatises on this topic.

I enjoyed the use of multiple presenters both because it was an effective way to vary the presentation and because I appreciated the perspective of agency counsel in addition to litigation attorneys. Very well done.

I'm really enjoying this course and find it better than another recent eDiscovery Project Management course I took. Using multiple instructors as well as ones so well versed and respected in the field gives us several perspectives and a depth of knowledge that will prove invaluable in our careers.
