“Your Computer is Smarter and Faster Than You: Using Technology-Assisted Review in Your Litigation Practice to Increase Efficiency and Reduce eDiscovery Costs”
This practical program will explain, in simple terms, what technology-assisted review (“TAR”) is and is not; describe how the different kinds of TAR on the market work; discuss how TAR can be used to reduce cost and achieve effective, efficient, and proportionate discovery; review the scientific evidence for TAR; and address judicial acceptance of TAR. There will be plenty of opportunity to have all of your TAR questions answered.
