Technology assisted review (predictive coding) for ediscovery still strikes fear in the hearts of many lawyers. Indeed, in the last ABA Legal Technology Survey (2018) only 12% of the respondents reported using predictive coding to process or review e-discovery materials. Many reported significant concerns about cost and the validity of the process.
In the following Guest Post, Rich Smith discusses the use and advantages of technolgy assisted review and dispels many of the concerns about use.

Lawyers fear technology.
However, SUCCESSFUL lawyers are EMBRACING technology.
THE MOST SUCCESSFUL lawyers are utilizing technology to assist them, especially during review of large amounts of documents.
Wait…technology…assisted…review? T.A.R.? Hmm, isn’t that sometimes called, “predictive coding”?
