In December 2009, Editors of the ABA Journal selected E-Lessons Learned as one of the top 100 blogs by lawyers, for lawyers. E-Lessons Learned was founded by Fernando M. Pinguelo '94, JD'97, a member of the law firm Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A. and an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University School of Law. E-Lessons Learned is an educational blog about electronic discovery and how technology affects corporate governance and lawsuits and it features content authored by young lawyers and law students from across the country. Fernando says, "I wanted to create a place where business leaders and corporate counsel could see first-hand how technology impacts lawsuits and learn how common mistakes can be avoided. I also wanted a place where my students could showcase their skills and contribute meaningfully to the legal discourse of this emerging area." Fernando has designed a state-of-the-art electronic discovery law course and teaches one of only a handful of such courses in the country at Seton Hall University School of Law. Recently, the Fulbright Program, the U.S. government's flagship international exchange program, designated Fernando a Fulbright Specialist for his work in eDiscovery, and he will engage in a project at a university in one of over 100 participating countries. Fernando was also invited to be a member of eDiscovery Group of The Sedona Conference Working Group Series, a prestigious series of think-tanks consisting of leading experts brought together by a desire to address various "tipping point" issues in each area under consideration.
