Speaker: Ed Fiduca, Regional Vice President, INVENTUS, Dallas, TX

The sheer volume of discovery is making it virtually mandatory to automate the document review, selection, production and post-production process (i.e., deposition preparation, briefing, and trial). Not only are lawyers having to figure out how to handle the sometimes staggering volume of e-mail and other e-discovery, they`re having to figure out how to handle it in a way that is complementary to and builds on the procedures that are already in place for handling paper-based productions.

This course explores early parts of the discovery phase of complex litigation during which parties are obligated to review documents then either produce relevant documents or withhold privileged ones. During this course the presenter will compare and contrast methods for electronically searching and reviewing documents including Early Case Assessment Technology, Near Duplicate Detection, Concept Search Technology, Boolean Logic, Fuzzy, and Word Association. In addition, we will explore the use of technology in performing potential spoliation audits of documents received from opposing counsel as well as use of the search functionality during deposition or trial.
