Survey Results: What Does Counsel Really Think About Predictive Coding?

Date: Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Time: 1pm ET | 10am PT

While the promise of predictive coding is alluring, many questions remain for corporations and law firms. Where does the software end and the importance of workflow begin? What can lawyers do to effectively defend its use? Are companies using it successfully? How much money can it save?

FTI Technology commissioned an interdisciplinary survey of law firm leaders and senior corporate counsel to identify key trends and perspectives on the emergence of predictive coding. The interviews covered everything from high-profile court rulings and cost savings estimates to adoption inhibitors.

Attend this webcast to learn the survey findings and hear first-hand perspectives and practical advice for implementing predictive coding software and processes, including:

  • Fortune 1000 and Am Law 200 predictive coding adoption trends
  • Best matters on which to use predictive coding
  • Top areas of concern, including predictive coding as a “black box”

Predictive Discovery: Taking Predictive Coding out of the “Black Box”

Date: Thursday, October 24, 2012
Time: 1pm ET | 10am PT
Cost: FREE

What goes on inside the “black box” is a concern for many. In fact, a recent study reported that more than half of Fortune 1000 and American Lawyer 200 attorneys noted concern about effectively defending the results of predictive coding. This concern is often due to the technical nature of predictive coding technology and workflow, as well as an overall lack of transparency into the software itself. Will predictive coding ever be less opaque or easier to explain?

Join us on October 24th as our panelists take predictive coding out of the black box by discussing topics such as:

  • Critical components to delivering high-quality predictive coding results.
  • Key performance indicators (KPIs) for measuring and ensuring coding accuracy.
  • Visual verification tools for testing inconsistencies in responsive or privilege decisions.
  • Defending the use of predictive coding in court.

Additional Featured Speaker:

  • Jason Baron, Director of Litigation, National Archives and Records Administration
