Ms. Erickson is a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School and a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis (BSBA, International Business; AB, Italian Language & Literature).  She is admitted to practice in Illinois and is a member of The Sedona Conference Working Groups 1 (Electronic Document Retention and Production), 6 (International Electronic Information Management, Discovery, and Disclosure), and 11 (Data Security and Privacy Liability).
