Academic Partners

Prepare your students with e-discovery technology skills for a successful legal career.

Professors are asked to find ways to elevate their programs and provide students with interactive experiences—all on a limited budget. The Relativity Academic Partner program is designed to create these experiences by giving students access to market-leading technology.

 

Trusted by all of the Am Law 200 and more than 120 litigation solution providers, Relativity is widely used in the e-discovery field. By offering your students exposure to the technology, they can graduate with the skills needed to be indispensable to their future employers starting on day one.

What You Need

The Relativity Academic Partner program is open to law schools and paralegal programs in the United States and Canada. Schools in the United States must be ABA approved.

What We Recommend

The use of Relativity is tied closely with the practice of e-discovery and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and we recommend that the technology is integrated into a full-term e-discovery course.
