Learn about ethics and use of technology-assisted review - ethics CLE credit at LegalTech NY 2014

Xerox to Lead Technology-Assisted Review (TAR) Track at LegalTech New York 2014

ROCHESTER, N.Y., January 30, 2014 – Xerox Litigation Services, the e-discovery division of Xerox (NYSE: XRX), today announced that it will be leading the technology-assisted review (TAR) track at LegalTech New York 2014, the world’s largest legal technology tradeshow. The TAR track will focus on salient issues in the use of TAR by law firms and corporate clients in litigation and investigations.

The TAR track will be held on February 6, 2014. Workshop times and participants for the two sessions are: 

10:30-11:45: The TAR Workroom – Standards & Best Practices

This track will offer practitioner insight into developing sound protocols to optimize the use of TAR, foundational standards for generating transparent and statistically sound performance and workflow best practices. This workshop is CLE eligible.

12:15-1:30: The TAR Ethics Lab – ABA & State Ethics Rules

This lab will address the ethical implications of using TAR to replicate human judgment in the search and review of e-discovery. Participants can expect to become better prepared to meet their ethical obligations when employing TAR. This is the only panel eligible for ethics CLE credit at the conference.

• Moderator: Gabriela Baron, Esq., Senior Vice President, Xerox Litigation Services • Jack Halprin, Esq., Head of e-Discovery, Enterprise, Google • Anthony J. Diana, Partner and Co-Leader, Electronic Discovery & Information Governance practice, Mayer Brown • Julie Brown, Litigation Technology Executive Manager at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP

“Technology-assisted review, though advanced by the courts in 2013 and increasingly accepted as one approach to large-scale review by our clients, is still a new and evolving tool for most law firms and corporations seeking to cut costs and expedite the e-discovery process,” stated Ms. Mackay. “We recognize that some clients want to use TAR as a do-it-yourself tool, like Viewpoint, and others opt for a more outsourced approach such as CategoriX. As staunch supporters of the thoughtful application of this technology, we are pleased to be advancing the discussion on best practices - no matter the approach -  for the use of TAR in litigation, investigations and information governance.”

In 2013, Xerox published dozens of articles on industry best practices and participated in industry-recognized standard-setting forums, including the ICAIL Workshop on Standards for Using Predictive Coding, Machine Learning, and Other Advanced Search and Review Methods in E-Discovery.

Xerox offers a portfolio of solutions to help corporate legal departments and law firms solve their most pressing e-discovery challenges. Clients can opt for fully outsourced managed services using its full-service cloud-based OmniX review platform, CategoriX technology-assisted review, on-premise e-discovery using the all-in-one Viewpoint e-discovery software, or a hybrid approach whereby customers conduct upstream activities - such as early case assessment - on-site using Viewpoint, and send data to the Xerox cloud for hosted review. Clients’ use of Xerox’s e-discovery technology can be supported by 24/7 professional services, consulting expertise and managed review.

At LegalTech, Xerox Litigation Services also will be holding a user group session for its OmniX users. Lateral Data, a Xerox company, will be leading Viewpoint user groups for its law firm and service provider customers, along with a Viewpoint certification refresher course. Since the launch of its certification program last year, hundreds of Viewpoint end users have been certified in sales, processing administration, review and advanced analytics, including Viewpoint Assisted Review, the platform’s integrated TAR module for prioritizing documents. Xerox Litigation Services will be exhibiting at booth #1414.
