The experts agree – family-batching legal-document review in eDiscovery is among the worst possible workflows for those looking to implement an advanced technology-assisted review (TAR 2.0) protocol.

Register today for this live webinar, featuring leading advisors from OpenText™, to learn about new technology that provides greater document-review efficiency and improves eDiscovery. Hear why family batching is an expensive, unnecessary review relic that must be permanently put to rest.

In this live webinar, speakers will share cutting-edge research on the topic, offer practical guidance from recent case scenarios and discuss eDiscovery software that can help. You’ll also learn:

  • What the latest research shows about family batching. 
  • How to make a TAR 2.0 review as efficient as possible.
  • The metrics to evaluate legal review efficiency and progress.
  • How an efficient TAR 2.0 workflow compares to alternative approaches, including TAR 1.0, and threaded or full family reviews.
  • Those who register will receive a link to the webinar recoding and related resources.
