This is a reminder that there is a discussion called Technology-Assisted Review: fact or fiction? to be held at the offices of Morgan Lewis in London on 13 June.
The speakers are Maura Grossman, Gordon Cormack and Tess Blair of Morgan Lewis. I am the moderator.
Now that Pyrrho and BCA Trading have established that the use of TAR is a proper way to manage eDisclosure in appropriate cases in the courts of England and Wales, it is necessary for lawyers (to say nothing of their clients) to understand the implications of using it.
My recent interview with former Senior Master Steven Whitaker serves as a good introduction to the use of technology in our courts.
Subjects to be covered include:
What is and is not TAR?
How different kind of TAR work
How TAR can be used to reduce costs while achieving effective and proportionate discovery
The scientific evidence for TAR
Judicial acceptance of TAR in England and Wales, Ireland, Australia and the United States.
