Technology Assisted Review: Or, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love a Computer Program

A Technology Assisted Review (“TAR”) Opinion

While it can seem frightening at first to put your faith in the hands of a computer program, the biggest takeaway from TAR is that when done correctly, attorneys are always going to be involved in the review and sampling processes, from the formative stages of a case to preparation of the final production. There is no blind reliance on a computer to do an attorney’s work. Instead, TAR cuts through the chaff to get to the wheat, eliminating the need to sift through a myriad of extraneous documents. The most important documents are then put in place for attorneys to review for early case assessment and/or litigation assistance. TAR is not meant to replace standard review processes and protocols, but instead to help streamline those processes so that review can be more targeted, fruitful and efficient.
