Finding Gaps. Discovering Solutions.

Discover Legal - LONG.png

DISCOVERY | Discovery is the process by which each party must produce relevant documentation and information in its possession before the court. To prevent abuse of process, many documents in discovery may only be inspected at the designated Court Registry.

WHAT WE DO | DiscoverLegal is a service that aims to lower costs for law firms and organisations while providing paid experience for law students who are eager to acquire practical legal skills outside of the classroom. We are currently offering inspections of subpoenaed documents with plans to extend our services to further forms of discovery in the near future.

THE GAP

Discovery is a burdensome process, which can often take time away from the more substantive issues in litigation for firms when considering:

  • Conduct money: the amount required to cover the expenses incurred by complying with the subpoena (including locating, collating and copying the documents)

  • Procedural costs involved in allocating time and resources for the job

  • Time wasted in outsourcing personal staff to inspect the documents at the local Registry

The problem

Law students are all too familiar with unpaid experience. Australia’s only nationally-representative study of internships found 58 per cent of Australians aged between 18 and 29 had participated in unpaid work experience over the last five years.

Although an unpaid internship may provide a beneficial experience for law students, the system can be a barrier for the broad population of financially struggling university students trying to make ends meet while undertaking a high-pressured and competitive degree.
