Cumberland School of Law Brings Law School Curriculum to 21st Century with eDiscovery Center

Summary: The Cumberland School of Law has announced the opening of its eDiscovery Institute & Review Center, which will provide students with the opportunity to engage in the most up to date methods of electronic discovery.

Cumberland School of Law is taking steps to place itself at the forefront of law school technology, reveals. The law school announced the creation of the eDiscovery Institute & Review Center, which is a partnership between the law school and a company called Cicayda. Cicayda specializes in legal technology and services. The collaboration will allow the school to create new courses and certificate programs that will focus on technology, compliance, information governance, eDiscovery, and project management.


The eDiscovery Institute & Review Center will bring Cumberland School of Law into a category of its own as students are able to prepare themselves for the heavy dependence attorneys have on technology, including electronic discovery.

The Institute will feature a state-of-the-art review facility on the law school’s campus, as well as an expert project management staff and top security.

During the discovery phase of litigation, attorneys on the opposing sides of a case send discovery requests, or requests for evidence, to each other. These requests can include a wide range of items, from depositions of witnesses to physical evidence. As law practices become increasingly paperless, attorneys have begun to use electronic discovery, or eDiscovery, as a more expedited means of exchanging information.

Henry C. Strickland, dean of Cumberland School of Law, and Roe Frazer, co-founder and CEO of Cicayda and a graduate of Cumberland, were excited about the new program. Strickland stated, “It provides an unprecedented opportunity to bring cutting-edge legal technology into our law school…It will provide our graduates employment and experience with fast-changing 21st century legal systems, and it will provide our students and faculty unmatched opportunities to engage with and understand the role of technology in our legal system.”

Frazer added, “Like a number of law schools looking to the future of a challenging profession, Cumberland is pushing its students to understand business and technology…With the marketplace shifting, schools have increasingly come under fire for being out of touch, but Cumberland is challenging this notion by partnering with Cicayda to give their graduates a huge advantage and opportunity.”
