Catalyst, DSi and Counsel On Call invite you to an educational CLE luncheon program.

Technology assisted review (aka TAR or predictive coding), sprang into prominence five years ago, when the first judicial opinions endorsed its use. Since then, TAR—with its proven ability to reduce review time and cost—has entered the mainstream of high-volume discovery, both in the United States and worldwide. Once used only for massive outbound productions, TAR is now also used for early case assessment, investigations, privilege review, quality control, and to prepare for depositions and trial.

TAR has proven its ability to reduce discovery costs, often by as much as 80%. However, many legal professionals are not yet familiar with how the process works, the differences between products, and how effective TAR can be in reducing the time and cost of review.

Join us on October 4 in Atlanta for this CLE program featuring a comprehensive primer on TAR. Our speakers will cover the technology, practice, and law, with emphasis on Continuous Active Learning, the most effective and efficient TAR method known today.

Date: Oct. 4, 2017

Location: Hyatt Regency Perimeter at Villa Christina, 4000 Summit Blvd., Atlanta

Time: 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

CLE credits: Pending

Seating is limited

Our panel of leading TAR experts from both the scientific and legal communities, will cover:

  • TAR for Smart People. How TAR works (for lawyers rather than scientists) and why it's a game changer for reducing the time and cost of document review.
  • Continuous Active Learning. What CAL is, how it works, and how it differs from other approaches to TAR. Learn how CAL overcomes typical TAR 1.0 problems like one-time training, rolling uploads, and the need for senior attorneys for training.
  • Review Savings. A look at the dramatic savings in time and cost that TAR can achieve as compared to traditional manual review.
  • New Uses. Ways attorneys are using TAR for early case assessment, internal investigations, privilege protection, quality control, and to more effectively prepare for depositions and trial.

Join us for this informative look at how corporations and their law firms are moving beyond manual review with the power of TAR 2.0. Attendees will receive a free copy of the newly released second edition of Catalyst’s popular book, “TAR for Smart People: How Technology Assisted Review Works and Why It Matters for Legal Professionals” and access to other useful resources.
