This 4-hour course is being taught by Colette Perkins of Emerging Litigation Technologies, LLC and will consist of two 2-hour sessions and 30 minutes of Q&A at the end.  If your firm does not have the application in-house, you will be provided a link with a 30-day free download.  You will also be provided with a free 30-day litigation support offering, which can be used to assist you with your current database/case needs once you are back in the office.  Ms. Perkins will follow up the course with a short Concordance quiz.  Don’t be nervous, it’s an “open-book” quiz the day after the course and the students/attendees have one week to complete the quiz and email back to Ms. Perkins.  At the conclusion of the course you will receive 4.0 NFPA CLE credits and upon completion and return of the quiz, Ms. Perkins will provide you with a certification of completion (add that to your resume).

 If you register for this Course and are a full-time paralegal interested in joining PANV (visit and for membership benefits), PANV will welcome you as a new member upon completion of a membership application at NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU. See attached membership application for more information.  Membership Application
