Advanced predictive coding solutions like technology-assisted review (“TAR”) are gaining popularity in the legal field. TAR uses artificial intelligence and allows litigators to streamline document review in ways they never imagined.
Courts have consistently exercised discretion when allowing discovery in foreign proceedings under the 1782 discovery statute. A foreign tribunal or interested party in a foreign proceeding must petition the appropriate district court while satisfying jurisdictional and other requirements.
Even lawyers that are not currently using artificial intelligence (AI) in their document review practice undoubtedly know what it is and are familiar with the benefits that technology assisted review (TAR) solutions offer. TAR programs use predictive coding algorithms to sort through large data sets and weed out irrelevant documents. After users train the program on what is relevant, it can identify data patterns and relevant concepts in future reviews. Currently, litigation uses data that is digital, repetitive, and voluminous. Compared to the time-consuming aspect of manual review, using TAR software makes document review more manageable, accurate, and consistent. However, even with all these known benefits, many lawyers retain steep reservations and are hesitant to rely on this technology.read more
