Patrick Burke and Denise Backhouse – teaching practical eDiscovery at the Benjamin Cardozo Law School

Patrick Burke is eDiscovery counsel at Reed Smith. Denise Backhouse is a shareholder at Littler Mendelson, specialising in eDiscovery and in information governance.

The both teach classes at the Benjamin N Cardozo Law School in New York, supplementing the students’ regular curriculum with courses aiming to give them practical knowledge about the legal issues raised by the very large volumes of data which are now the norm.

Relatively few US law schools (and no British ones so far as I am aware) offer this kind of practical teaching. Patrick Burke and Denise
Backhouse emphasise that their purpose is to help equip the students with something extra when they go out and compete in a job market which does not have places for every new entrant.
