Following the recent announcement that EDRM co-founder George Socha had joined provider BDO, the EDRM organization itself has been acquired by the Duke University School of Law for an undisclosed amount. This should not surprise industry veterans who have been watching EDRM for years as other education and standards organizations have gained market acceptance. From my perspective, the EDRM delivered great value and materials in the first 5-7 years when new practitioners needed a common vocabulary and process definition. It was never a true non-profit standards organization like the LTPI or the LTC4. Maybe moving under the academic umbrella will encourage participation without the agendas of commercial sponsors and partners. As our industry slowly matures we need more unbiased resources and authorities to keep up with our ever changing sources of ESI. The EDRM had a good run. Let’s hope that Duke Law gives it a new focus and solid foundation to serve the community.
