Houstonians, Here’s a Terrific Panel Discussion on TAR Right in Your Own Backyard: eDiscovery Best Practices

Next month, I have the privilege of moderating a panel on the current state of the acceptance of technology assisted review (TAR) with three terrific panelists, courtesy of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS).  If you’re in Houston on April 3rd, you might want to check it out!

The panel is titled From Asking About It to Asking For It: The Evolution of the Acceptance and Use of TAR and it will be held at the offices of BoyarMiller law firm at 2925 Richmond Avenue, Houston, Texas  77098 (their offices are on the 14th floor).  The event will begin at 11:30am and will conclude at 1:30pm.  Lunch will be served!

Our panelists will be Christopher Cafiero, J.D., Southwest Territory Manager of Catalyst Repository Systems (and former trial lawyer), Gary Wiener, Independent eDiscovery Consultant, SME and Attorney and Rohit Kelkar, Vice President of R&D at Servient.  We will discuss several topics related to the current state of TAR, including the state of approval of TAR within the legal community, differences in approaches and preferred methods to TAR, disclosure of the use of TAR to opposing parties, and recommendations for those using TAR for the first time.

If you’re in Houston and you’d like to attend, register by clicking here.  Honestly, I don’t know how many people will be able to attend, so I recommend that you register early (but not often) to make sure you can get in.  If you want to learn about TAR in the Houston area, this is an excellent opportunity!

So, what do you think?  Are you interested in learning about TAR and are you going to be in the Houston area on April 3rd?  If so, we’d love to see you there!  And, as always, please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
