TECHNOLOGY ASSISTED REVIEW (TAR): What Is It? What Should You Do If Someone Wants To Use It?

This session will provide an explanation of what Technology Assisted Review (TAR) is, also known as predictive coding, and how it generally works. Predictive coding has the potential to be a useful review tool for reviewing large productions. We will discuss strategies for leveraging this technology for more efficient productions, as well as look at some of the cons. We will also explore issues that can arise when counsel wants to comply with a subpoena using predictive coding software, and what to do in those situations. Our speakers will address TAR from the user’s perspective and the vendor’s perspective.
