    Chicago Paralegal Association has teamed up with DISCO to access their e-discovery document review platform. This opportunity is normally only reserved for law schools, but we were able to convince DISCO that paralegals need database training just as much as future lawyers. We will be using DISCO training materials and our own materials to develop a training program to ensure our members are set up for success in the litigation and e-discovery fields. You won’t find this training program anywhere else. With the help of DISCO, CPA will provide members with real-world experience on how to navigate an e-discovery platform, how to perform a document review, gain experience in searching in a real database, and much more.

    Declaring that an agency that still widely uses carbon paper could use a bit of reform, a trio of Chicago civic groups today unveiled changes they’d like to see the new clerk of the Cook County Circuit Court make after 20-year incumbent Dorothy Brown leaves the post in December.

    Included is a top-to-bottom audit, expanded use of e-filing, a final end to patronage hiring, electronic recording of all court sessions and, yes, no more carbon paper, which the report says is still extensively used for key documents, even amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
