This vlog is a six minute video from the last day of class on e-discovery at the University of Florida. Holland & Knight’s William Hamilton and I serve as adjunct professors at the College of Law to try to pass on what we know about the subject to the next generation. A basic understanding of the subject takes a few hundred hours and, if a student works hard, can be accomplished in one semester. According to Malcolm Gladwell, and I agree, to go on and obtain complete mastery of any complex task like this takes 10,000 hours. See: Inspector Clouseau and the Insights of Judge Facciola and Malcolm Gladwell Suggest a Bright Future for e-Discovery Lawyers. Such a long learning journey requires a motivational start and reasoned perseverance. The legal profession needs more people to take this journey, and soon, if our system of justice is to continue. May this video prod and encourage a few more students and practitioners in that direction.
