A Checklist for Getting the Most Out of Your E-Discovery Vendor Relationship

Description: Today’s legal environment has made it nearly impossible to have litigation without some amount of e-discovery involving an outside vendor. E-discovery can be fully outsourced, done entirely in-house or involve a combination of both. Whatever your organization’s e-discovery needs, it’s important to know how to navigate the vendor relationship. Leave with a checklist of issues to consider and important questions to ask when evaluating e-discovery vendor services.

Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better … Predictive Coding vs. Human Review

Description: As Ethel Merman and Ray Middleton melodically contested in “Annie Get Your Gun”, “Anything you can do, I can do better; I can do anything better than you”. The disagreement continues when comparing predictive coding to human review. Come hear results of the Electronic Discovery Institute’s predictive coding study and get a non-biased, scientific view into the world of predictive coding. How did e-discovery service providers compare to each other? Do quality results and high cost go together? How did human review results compare to predictive coding? Do humans still rule?

Speaker is: Patrick L. Oot – Shook, Hardy & Bacon L.L.P.
