December 2: NYC - eDiscovery & Technology: the Ethics of Search and Use of Effective Keyword Strategies

The escalation in the use of technology to create and share information is affecting the practice of law. To address this reality, in August 2012 the ABA Model Rule of Professional Responsibility 1.1 (competence) was amended in to focus attorneys on the need to stay aware of the risks and benefits of its use.
In litigation, especially, the use of technology for document review continues to be a topic of interest, both to law firms and the courts. How much does a lawyer need to know about the new and evolving eDiscovery search tools and how they work? How do you know if they’re doing a good enough job, and how do you know what’s good enough? Are these tools defensible?
In this CLE, Julia Brickell, general counsel and executive managing director at H5 and Dan Brassil, H5’s principal consultant and linguist, join forces to both explore the evolution of courts’ expectations on the use of technology in discovery—including the ethical issues related to the use of various tools—and to discuss how basic principles of linguistics and information retrieval science can be applied to the litigation discovery effort.
Julia sets the stage with a discussion of the basics of various search methodologies used in discovery, and Dan takes a deeper dive with a practical primer on one commonly applied approach to search: how to use keywords effectively to cull data populations and conduct searches for relevant documents, whether for case preparation or production to the opposing side.
