Mpls - St. Paul Chapter Meeting - How to Meet Discovery Obligations

  • 09 May 2019
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Please join us for a presentation on how to meet discovery obligations with today’s technology.

Attorneys are under an ethical obligation to understand the tools at their disposal to assist their clients – meaning attorneys need to be proficient in the latest technologies. In this session we will cover a general overview on how technology is changing the way we practice law. This will be followed by an in depth focus on how one technology, Machine Learning, is being leveraged in document discovery.

Technology-assisted review (TAR) is the next generation of technology that allows attorneys to more efficiently find, learn from and manage data. Using algorithms, analytics and computer learning modules, TAR can dramatically increase efficiency, improve quality and reduce costs – but it takes a knowledgeable attorney to know how to properly deploy it on the matters and issues at hand.

In this session we will look at the practical issues surrounding TAR, and the concept that an attorney doesn’t have to physically review every document involved in a case.

Cooperation vs Protection

Work product to protect training sets

Working under the proposed DOJ Predictive Coding requirements

Statistical validation – knowing when it’s OK to stop the search for relevant documents

How “tech savvy” do I need to be as an attorney?

As they pertain to TAR, the guiding principles of eDiscovery will be discussed -- Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 1, 26(g), 26(b)(1); and Model Rule 1.1, more specifically Comment 8.

Lunch is being provided and sponsored by Legility.

1 CLE credit will be applied for in Minnesota.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, May 7, 2019.

If you are not sure you can attend, please respond with a "Maybe."
