Working Groups to Focus on TAR, Analytics and Cross-Border E-Discovery
EDRM, the leading standards organization for the e-discovery market, announced today that the new EDRM and Duke Law School leadership will hold the annual EDRM Workshop on the campus at Duke Law School, May 15-17, 2017.
The 2017 EDRM workshop is an opportunity for members to report on ongoing projects and suggest new projects. The workshop will open with a plenary session describing the vision of EDRM under Duke Law leadership. Separate breakout sessions on the first day will focus on the recently formed technology-assisted review (TAR) project and a new cross-border dispute project establishing a code of conduct under the GDPR. A third breakout session will address ongoing projects and new project proposals from members.
“We are committed to at least one major deliverable each year,” says Jim Waldron, director of EDRM. “The TAR project is the first for 2017.” EDRM recently launched the new project aimed at building out guidance for practitioners on the use of technology-assisted review in e-discovery. The 2017 TAR Project team is being led by Mike Quartararo of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, Gareth Evans of Gibson Dunn and Adam Strayer of BDO Consulting. The team of over 30 volunteers has begun work on drafting guidance on TAR and will continue the effort in working sessions and discussions at the 2017 Workshop.
“The active participation of members of the judiciary in the work of EDRM is significant,” says John Rabiej, Judicial Studies Center. “The efforts on active EDRM projects are broadly representative of the many perspectives and voices in e-discovery, from attorneys and litigation support, to corporate legal, e-discovery providers, technology visionaries, and judges. We are excited about the quality of work already being done by this high-caliber mix of contributors.”
