For NY - Difficulty Level: For experienced attorneys only (non-transitional)


Given the sheer amount of discoverable data that's out there, the ability to distinguish actual from pseudo privileged information is nearly impossible without the application of "smart" auto-extraction & sifting tools. With communication channels and data sources constantly evolving, is the tedious approach keyword search approach to privilege review still the right option? It does get the job done but with the power of data science & automation at your disposal, why not save time and money?

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on March 9th, 2022.
