A diverse panel of experts including a US magistrate, practitioners, an ethicist and a discovery solutions expert will provide a primer on technology-assisted reviews, predictive coding, current case law and the ethical problems that are inherent in using e-discovery software. Some of the issues which will be addressed include:
• Defensibility/Validation of technology-assisted reviews
• Reasonableness of predictive coding: advantages; impact of size of data set
• Different types of technology-assisted reviews/predictive coding: are all types of technology assisted review technology alike? How to integrate into a firm’s review platform
• Disclosure obligations and benefits
• Uses of technology-assisted reviews that do not have ethical implications
• Judicial role: when the court should become involved in evaluating a review protocol; standards a court should use in reviewing technology-assisted review; what the court will require from the parties to be satisfied as to the reliability of technology-assisted review; can a court require disclosure of seed sets if selection of the seed documents constitutes attorney work product or if the sets contain documents that contain work product, attorney-client communications, or confidential documents
• Resources and models available to small firms
• Benefits of e-Discovery to small organizations and law firms
• Ethical applications: reasonable inquiry problems; negotiations with opposing party; inadvertent disclosure of information; disclosure of confidential information in metadata; outsourcing e-discovery and client confidentiality
