In recent years, Courts (federal and state) have begun questioning the validity of key word searches—as well as the ability of lawyers to craft those searches. In doing so, they have refused to order the return of inadvertently-produced privileged documents for failing to use a proper search protocol, which can obviously change the course of your case. Lawyers suddenly find themselves speaking with their malpractice carrier while their clients wonder what happened.
This seminar will cover the new rules on keyword searching and provide practical tips to ensure that your search techniques are up to par. After discussing the key search cases and their implications for privilege review, our distinguished faculty of e-discovery lawyers and search experts will show new methods for improving search and making sure privileged documents are not inadvertently produced, and if so, how to ensure your protocol is defensible.
- Topics will include:
- The Search Cases: From O’Keefe to Hawley Insurance—Are lawyers qualified to craft and run their own search methodologies?
- Should you cooperate with opposing counsel in formulating search terms?
- Are you able to certify your search methodology for the Court?
- Defensibility of Your Search Protocol: What must lawyers do to ensure that inadvertently produced privileged documents will be returned and not used in the case pursuant to FRE 502 and “clawback agreements.”
- Tips and Techniques to Find Privileged Documents: Practical advice from search experts on how to find privileged documents and improve your search strategy.
Advanced Analytical Techniques for Managing Large Document Populations: New statistical and mathematical techniques to find relevant documents and pare down document populations to target relevant documents.
The program will run for one hour and fifteen minutes and is approved for 1.25 hours of CLE credit for Illinois and New York.
