Description

In just 10 years the case law around eDiscovery AI & Analytics has exploded. Over 100 published opinions specifically address TAR and Predictive Coding--evaluating complex and nuanced issues like defensibility, workflow design, protocol negotiation, and transparency obligations. In the meantime, dozens of state bar associations have imposed ethical obligations for lawyers to maintain technical competency, including within eDiscovery. Thomas C. Gricks III will lead an educational panel of experts covering the key legal issues around eDiscovery and technology.
