Better Together: Predictive Coding & Analytics on Three Common Use Cases ( 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. EST)Predictive coding is a powerful tool to help speed legal review, but it isn't a silver bullet. Analytics can help supplement predictive coding by visually clarifying its results, accelerating review of the remaining materials and assisting in trial and deposition preparation.

Session attendees will learn about:
- key analytics tools available for the legal review process;
- processes needed to supplement the use of predictive coding as part of a defensible legal review workflow; and
- case study examples of predictive coding and analytics working together on a Second-Request, internal investigation and trial prep.
- key business drivers and benefits of conducting information governance projects and implementing policies;
- how to leverage e-discovery technology and processes for information governance purposes; and
- advice from peers on developing an information governance action plan.
- the evolving data privacy regulatory environment across Asia and Europe;
