In the first hour and a half, participants will be provided with an introduction to eDiscovery and provide a background of the international and regional eDiscovery scene. Participants will gain an understanding of why eDiscovery is becoming increasingly critical in litigation and investigation matters.
Discovery is a procedure in a trial where parties disclose documents within each party’s control to the other side if such documents are sufficiently linked to the potential or actual issues of the dispute. Traditionally a labour-intensive process involving many lawyers and man-hours, discovery can now be done electronically by machines trained to identify and extract mountains of relevant information in just hours rather than months. eDiscovery dramatically increases the speed and efficiency of the discovery process, hence reducing costs and saving clients money.
Participants will then be given an overview of key areas of eDiscovery Management namely:
- Fundamentals of eDiscovery processes
- eDiscovery readiness
- Project management, and
- Training on legal analytics and Artificial Intelligence
In the last 30 minutes, participants will be given a showcase of the Nuix Discover platform. In particular, participants will gain an understanding of how documents are presented, reviewed and produced in Nuix Discover, and how its analytic and artificial intelligence features can dramatically speed up the review and analysis processes in eDiscovery.
