Cyberspace (August 10, 2012) – eLessons Learned – Where Law, Technology, and Human Error Collide, the premier eDiscovery blog written primarily by law students, announces its newest additions to the eLL Executive Team: Chris Borchert (2L at UConn Law) and Catherine Kiernan (2L at Rutgers Law-Camden).
eLessons Learned appoints Chris and Catherine to serve as Co-Editors in Chief for the coming 2012-2013 academic year, while Editor in Chief Frank Gonnello Jr. (J.D./M.B.A. 2012) will transition into a strategic role on eLL’s Executive Team and serve as the blog’s Executive Editor.
Chris is a second-year student at the University of Connecticut School of Law, where he is pursuing a certificate in Intellectual Property in addition to his J.D. Chris earned a B.A. in Political Communication from The George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs and wrote his thesis on the role of new media in modern American political discourse. Chris worked at Norris, McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A., where he focused primarily on matters relating to eDiscovery, cybersecurity, and data privacy.
Catherine graduated magna cum laude from Rutgers University, New Brunswick in 2010 with a B.A. in political science and expects to receive her J.D. from Rutgers School of Law – Camden in 2014. This year she will participate in the competitive Hunter Moot Court. This past summer she interned with a magistrate judge for the U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey where she contributed to a bench trial opinion, among other notable experiences. Catherine also has past experience working for a New Jersey state trial court judge, the United Nations, and as a research assistant for a prominent professor at Rutgers University’s prestigious Eagleton Institute of Politics.
The new eLL editorial board is eager to continue eLessons Learned’s tradition of providing subscribers with useful, timely information about the latest developments on how technology impacts the law. “One of our goals is to make eLLblog a destination site for the legal and technology communities to turn to for up-to-date, relevant information about technology’s impact on the law,” said Chris. Catherine added that “We will also work towards expanding the number of law student blog contributors and continue to improve eLL’s features in a way that accommodates the needs of the increasingly fast-paced lives of our busy readers who need up-to-date information
that is easy to digest and a click away.”
“We expect big things from this hand-selected team in the weeks and months to come. Chris and Catherine offer the right mix of determination, innovation, enthusiasm and academic experience to continue the work we started more than three years ago,” said Frank Gonnello.
