Bryan University is pleased to announce a partnership with iCONECT Development LLC, technology leaders that reach beyond the status quo with an intuitive and flexible document review platform. Utilized for both undergraduate and graduate curriculum, iCONECT’s ground-breaking XERA review platform enables students to experience hands-on training with one of the most powerful and versatile litigation support software platforms available today.

“Bryan University chose XERA based upon its intuitive and easy-to-learn design, and robust features,” states Provost and Dean of E-Discovery William Hamilton. “We’ll be exposing students to a top-notch review platform.  It’s a perfect match for us, as it allows us to teach students not only how to guide projects through the most crucial phase of the EDRM [Electronic Discovery Reference Model], but how to use advanced analytical features to do so aptly and intelligently.”

Designed, developed, and delivered by pre-eminent experts and practitioners in the field, Bryan University’s E-Discovery Graduate Certificate program provides students with the real-world preparation necessary to grasp the complexities of a quickly evolving field.  Students gain an intimate understanding of the concepts, cases, and strategies that define the industry.

“XERA is already used for some of the largest legal review projects in the world, so what better software for the students to learn,” says Ian Campbell, iCONECT President and Co-founder. “XERA is designed to be very powerful, yet user-friendly and intuitive.  Being a part of course curriculum development is vital to teaching best practices and preparing students to deal with complex projects after graduation.”

E-Discovery is a burgeoning industry and a key component of the legal process, often representing 50 percent or more of costs related to litigation. Bryan University has designed two programs of study within the Department of E-Discovery to meet the needs of employers seeking candidates who are highly qualified to support, perform or manage e-Discovery projects.  At the undergraduate level, students may pursue a Litigation and E-Discovery Paralegal Associate Degree; at the graduate level, students may earn an E-Discovery Project Management Certificate.

The partnership with Bryan University is the first implementation of the iCONECT education program that works with universities and colleges worldwide to combine study curriculum, industry savvy faculty, and iCONECT’s XERA review platform to create a real-world environment in which students can learn.

iCONECT Development, LLC is a global market leader in developing innovative legal review software, services and programs that empower people to complete complex legal review projects more cost-effectively.  As early innovators of e-Discovery review software since 1999, and with the release of its revolutionary web-based XERA eDiscovery Review Platform, iCONECT continues to raise the bar for advancements in developing intelligent, easy-to-use tools that help hosting providers, law firms, corporations and government agencies worldwide optimize workflows and manage big data more efficiently.
