At Relativity Fest 2015, kCura held a “Women in Legal Technology” luncheon, where panelists shared milestones that paved their careers in ediscovery. Not wanting to wait a full year to hear more stories from the brilliant women who make up the ediscovery industry, kCura reached out to a few women at the lunch to gather their advice on working and getting started in ediscovery.
Among these women, Yvette Bula, Director of Technical Services at Commonwealth Legal, had this to say:
How she landed in ediscovery: "I got my start in ediscovery around 16 years ago on a contract with a national law firm working on a massive litigation matter. Commonwealth Legal was also involved in providing support for the litigation matter, and I was offered an opportunity to join the team after that contract ended."
What she would say to someone who just joined the industry: "Join a respected and talented team and leverage the knowledge of that team to build out your experience and exposure in a meaningful way. Collaboration is the cornerstone to growth, and I have been extremely fortunate in my career to have had the opportunity to work with some of the finest minds in the industry, and to be a part of a company with a commitment to education and growth."
