Practical Tips for a Successful First TAR Project
Technology Assisted Review (TAR) has been judicially approved for use in appropriate cases for several years now and is a powerful tool for document review, legal investigations, and beyond, yet most corporate legal departments and law firms are not utilizing this tool. In this webinar Kelly Atherton and Sam Merritt of NightOwl Discovery will share practical tips from the trenches on setting up the project and deadlines, and to effectively train the system to most efficiently categorize and rank documents.
