Ilan Tsekhman, Associate at Heuristica Discovery Counsel, and other senior Bay Street e-Discovery practitioners will teach Discovery Planning to candidates in the Ryerson Law Practice Program (LPP)


Ryerson’s Law Practice Program (LPP) is the first of its kind in Ontario.  It’s an innovative alternative to traditional articling with a rigorous and demanding eight-month program that combines online training, experiential learning, and a hands-on work term.  Ryerson works with the Law Society of Ontario and the legal community, including a strategic alliance with the Ontario Bar Association, to deliver a dynamic program that prepares law school graduates to succeed in their legal practice and careers.


Tsekhman, other senior members of the Ontario e-Discovery Implementation Committee and Gina Alexandris (LPP Program Director) will once again present on e-Discovery and discovery planning to LPP candidates.  The discovery planning module will be presented via online webinars and includes an innovative exercise wherein the candidates will be presented with a fact pattern and will have to engage with their own virtual law firm teams to negotiate a plan with an opposing virtual firm.  To further simulate a real-world exercise, each side will be in possession of facts that are not known to opposing counsel.  The candidates will then be provided with practical feedback on their plans.
