Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 15, 2016
kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, today announced 10 Relativity Fest student scholarships that will provide an opportunity for future lawyers and paralegals to attend the annual e-discovery conference Relativity Fest.
Both undergraduate and graduate students from law schools and paralegal programs approved by the American Bar Association (ABA) are eligible to apply for the scholarship by August 15, 2016. The award covers transportation, lodging, meals, and event registration. To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must complete an application and secure a recommendation from a litigation or e-discovery professor. Scholarship recipients will be announced on September 1, 2016.
“Relativity Fest provides a unique educational opportunity for the lawyers and paralegals of tomorrow,” said Nick Robertson, chief operating officer at kCura. “We’re excited to assist students and educational institutions in developing practical technology and e-discovery skills and, as a result, help the industry advance overall.”
The inaugural Relativity Fest student scholarships came out of the Relativity Academic Partner program, an educational initiative that provides law schools and paralegal programs with free access to hands-on training in Relativity and helps prepare students for future roles in the field. Announced during Relativity Fest last year, the program started with 50 schools, and more than 20 schools have since joined. As part of the program, universities and their instructors have access to additional educational and informational resources, including in-person training, the Relativity Customer Portal, and kCura’s support team.
Relativity Fest will take place in Chicago on October 9-11, 2016. The conference is designed to educate and connect the e-discovery community through engaging panel discussions, hands-on labs, breakout sessions, and more.
