November 2022 - MALSP Meeting - The State of AI in eDiscovery 2023: Considerations for Plaintiffs and Defense


Navigating the new aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the legal industry, specifically eDisocvery, can be a challenge – especially in a field resistant to such change.

Join two of the leading voices in eDiscovery on AI as we explore not only what is AI in the context of eDiscovery (separating it out from the traditional “Analytics” tools from the past decade – but delve into practical applications and workflows from the Plaintiff and Defense perspective. Additionally, we’ll discuss how to get buy-in from your attorneys and opposing counsel for such uses, and how to ensure your methods hold up with the judge.
