Since the early days of technology assisted review, one question has persisted: How big does a case need to be before it makes sense to use TAR? Minimum numbers varied widely from as little as 100,000 up to a million documents.

TAR 1.0 systems also required 500-document control sets and having senior lawyers code thousands of documents before starting review. And, when more documents were added to the set, you had to start all over. The consensus was that TAR wasn’t appropriate for small cases. And it was time-intensive.

With TAR 2.0 and continuous active learning none of this applies. Simply start review using whatever is handy for initial seeds and stop when you run out of relevant documents.

Join us for a look at how TAR 2.0 helps with smaller cases. You’ll learn how to save time and money with cases as small as 5,000 documents. Our TAR 2.0 experts will cover:

  1. How the inefficiencies of a TAR 1.0 process make it unsuitable for small cases.
  2. Why TAR 1.0 training protocols waste senior lawyer time.
  3. Why tagging control sets can produce misleading results.
  4. How TAR 2.0 streamlines the review process, making it efficient and cost effective even for smaller cases.
  5. Simplified workflows that make TAR efficient in smaller cases.
  6. The valuable role of algorithmic QC in a small TAR review.

Run departments better. Save client budgets. What would you do with extra time and budget?
