When hit with an unexpected information request, eDiscovery teams need to quickly size up the task and learn the facts. Sometimes, however, there are no relevant documents to be found. When documents themselves are the object of the investigation, as in governmental and regulatory investigations, that often means reviewing the entire document population—only to come up empty-handed.

Learn how to short circuit an expensive and time-consuming review effort to demonstrate there are no relevant documents in the collection—proving a negative quickly, comprehensively and without the effort and cost of a traditional eDiscovery review.  

Our experts will provide insights and tips on the following topics:

  • What it means to prove a negative
  • Using statistics to scope the project
  • Initiating a review for documents that are close to responsive
  • How to QC every investigation with TAR based on continuous active learning

Those registered receive a link to the recording and additional resources.
