E-Discovery: Will Software Replace Lawyers, Threaten Fairness? - News Conference

April 15, 2013 • Washington, DC


The year 2012 was a landmark year – for the first time, federal and state judges published opinions approving lawyers’ use of new forms of software and technology to find responsive documents in huge data repositories. Is the legal profession ready to embrace these new 21st century techniques based on mathematical algorithms? Will they eliminate the armies of young lawyers and contract attorneys now so necessary for large-scale document production? And do these new techniques raise fairness issues in litigation where only one party has access to highly sophisticated software?

A panel of some of the leading experts in e-discovery will address these issues in a National Press Club Newsmakers news conference scheduled for 3 p.m., Monday, April 15, 2013 in the club’s Zenger Room on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building, 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C.

Jeane Thomas is one of the panel speakers.
