Extract from Thomas Gricks' article "What to Expect from Technology-Assisted Review in 2019"
This article first appeared in Law360 on January 3, 2019.
2018 will be remembered as a transition year for technology-assisted review. The battle over whether we can use TAR has all but disappeared, and our attention has turned to how we will use TAR — an inquiry with two clear dimensions. In litigation, the question is whether, and to what extent, we will put TAR under a microscope and force the discussion of parameters surrounding the implementation of the technology-assisted review process. Outside of litigation, the focus has shifted to identifying alternative techniques and other applications for TAR technology within the legal space.
Calendar year 2019 will likely see a continuation of this trend, with refinement and expansion across the board. As document collections continue to grow in litigation, and technology-assisted review becomes increasingly prevalent, we will see the boundaries of the TAR process begin to be explicitly tested and delineated. And, given the effectiveness of technology-assisted review in efficiently locating documents, the use of TAR techniques will undoubtedly see growing adoption outside the arena of production in litigation.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
