The eDiscovery Series is comprised of 3 sessions taking place on the same day which have been designed to run sequentially and complement each other – however they can be undertaken on a standalone basis.
The sessions will be delivered by Matthew McKee and Andy Harbison, Grant Thornton Forensic & Investigation Services.
The running order for the day will be as follows:
9.30am – 11am Introductory Level/Beginner
11.15am – 12.45pm Level 1/Intermediate
1.30pm – 3pm Level 2/Advanced
These sessions will provide delegates with a comprehensive overview of eDiscovery processes and principles with specific focus on how these principles can be applied in practice. All sessions will be approached from a Northern Ireland Law Firm perspective and will be tailored to practice in this jurisdiction particularly in light of the recent Commercial Hub Practice Direction.
The Introductory Level/Beginner session will focus on the high level principles of eDiscovery together with a breakdown of the steps and individual phases involved in the successful administration of an eDiscovery project.
The Level 1/Intermediate session will focus on principles of project management. Delegates will be introduced to how a NI law firm can successfully manage the review of documents in an eDiscovery context. This session will build upon principles discussed in the introductory session – illustrating how a law firm might utilise technology in conjunction with a human team in order to achieve successful eDiscovery outcomes.
The Level 2/Advanced session will introduce delegates to Technology Assisted Review, sometimes referred to as “Predictive Coding” – and how it can be utilised to assist with document review and Discovery projects. This session will showcase how cutting edge technology can be combined with human review in order to provide valuable insights into document review, streamline the project timetable whilst also mitigating risk and maintaining review accuracy.
Completing all 3 sessions will fully cover the 2019 Client Care and Practice Management and any additional hours can be carried over into the General Group Study CPD requirement – delegates can claim 4.5 Client Care and Practice Management hours in total for attendance at all 3 sessions in the series. If all 3 sessions are booked together a discounted fee of £50 will be offered.
