There has been a lot buzz about new technologies that can do document review with little to no human involvement. Some believe that technology-only reviews are better and faster than attorney-only reviews. But, if done correctly, attorney-led reviews can both streamline the review and teach the legal team the case in real-time in ways that technology alone just can’t.

While it is true that “traditional” attorney-only reviews can be overly expensive and not always accurate, new technologies that promise to lower costs also have problems of their own. Legal standards for defending the results produced by these predictive coding tools have not yet been developed. And no one is sure what level of outside testimony will be needed to prove the reliability of productions from tool-only reviews.
