Relativity, a global legal and compliance technology company, has officially begun its inaugural Relativity Fellows program. After reviewing more than 320 applications and conducting 116 first-round virtual interviews, Relativity chose 12 motivated individuals from a diverse pool of applicants based in Chicago. The program will run through early 2021 and Fellows that complete the program will be placed in a full-time role at Relativity or one of its e-discovery partners.

“All of us at Relativity are beyond excited to welcome these bright and talented individuals to learn with us so they can launch their careers in litigation support and e-discovery,” said Mike Gamson, Chief Executive Officer at Relativity. “Each of these unique Fellows brings a diverse set of skills and ideas to the table that will not only help them succeed individually but help our organization develop strong subject matter experts and the e-discovery industry build a more inclusive environment.”
In addition to the proprietary educational content around its software, Relativity has also partnered with the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) to provide supplementary foundational training and development programming so the Fellows can gain an in-depth understanding of complex e-discovery issues and challenges.
