Technology has assisted counsel in review of large volumes of information for more than 20 years. As was the case with Optical Character Recognition and full-text indexing, Technology-Assisted Review (TAR) is going to dramatically change how documents are reviewed by litigants.

TAR is not a one-size-fits-all choice – technologies and applications are varied. The marketplace offers many options.

Learn how to enhance your discovery process with EY TAR, the technology that “thinks” as you think, based on what you’ve thought.

Attend this session as we engage top experts from the bench, bar and industry to discuss:

  • What is TAR?
  • The many choices of TAR
  • Court acceptance of TAR in the US
  • Common use cases
