Much has changed since TAR first gained judicial approval in the landmark 2012 Da Silva Moore v. Publicis Groupe decision. This panel will consider how TAR’s capabilities have grown over the last few years, evolving from an inscrutable “black box” to a powerful technology that can drive litigation strategy. In this session, attendees will learn key workflows for optimizing the use of TAR, accelerating document review and ensuring defensibility as our expert panelists discuss advanced TAR 2.0 workflows.
