You’ve read the articles, you’ve seen the demos, and you’ve heard the pitches: technology-assisted review (also known as TAR or predictive coding) is better than manual review for eDiscovery. In this program, leading eDiscovery expert Mara R. Grossman drills down into what TAR is, how it works, the differences between various TAR products on the market, and the scientific evidence supporting TAR’s effectiveness at reducing the time and cost of document review while improving its quality. 

In addition to covering the nuts and bolts of technology-assisted review, Grossman also discusses TAR case law from 2012 to the present, and some of the issues that still remain to be resolved. One of the country's leading experts answers all of your questions about the potential uses of TAR, negotiating TAR protocols, and what to look for when it comes to TAR. 

In this 60-minute program, Grossman will cover:

  • What is technology-assisted review is and how it works
    • The document review problem and options for addressing it
    • Measures of information retrieval
    • Different types of TAR available in the market
    • TAR 1.0 versus TAR 2.0
    • A demonstration of a Continuous Active Learning® (CAL®) TAR Tool
  • The scientific evidence supporting TAR
  • TAR and the courts from 2012–2021
  • Open and unresolved TAR issues

Even if your firm does not utilize TAR, many large defense firms do. Prepare yourself for trial by better understanding the eDiscovery methods your opposition may be using and learn how to counter any proportionality/undue burden arguments they may make if they choose not to use TAR.
