Professor Richard Susskind emphasises the diverse
range of methods which are available to lawyers and which ought to be considered when approaching any project as part of his suggestion that:
Lawyers must ask themselves what elements of their current workload could be undertaken more quickly, more cheaply, more efficiently, or to a higher quality using different and new methods of working.
Document review is an immensely labour-intensive task. Courts, as well as clients, are increasingly pressing lawyers to consider different ways of reducing the burden of eDiscovery / eDisclosure amongst other “tools and techniques” (as the UK Practice Direction 31B puts it) which are available to them.
One of the most cost-effective ways of achieving this objective is offshore document review, something which is the subject of several misconceptions. In this podcast called Dispelling Myths of Offshore Document Review, Josh Hogue and Tamir Kriegel of Huron Legal consider some of the myths and discuss the benefits of sending document hosting review work offshore.
