There are many tools available to help you create accurate and healthy searches. Check out these most common searching snafus and their best methods of prevention to accelerate your review.
During the debates over the 2015 e-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, one of the biggest points of contention was the change in the sanctions provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 37(e).

Originally published more than a year ago, this post is a helpful look at one of the easiest wins in all of e-discovery analytics. We've updated it to reflect the current capabilities of Relativity, and are republishing it to give you another look.
According to the Radicati Group, the average businessperson sends 36 emails per day. It may not sound like much, but if you do the math, it means a single employee creates nearly 10,000 emails per year (more if they work weekends).
With these numbers, it’s no wonder email is the dominant data form in e-discovery. Even in cases involving only a few custodians, you’re looking at a data set filled with thousands of emails, one for every time your custodian hits send.
With this unique set of challenges, it’s important to connect with others who are in the same boat.
While there are countless legal professional organizations to connect lawyers with one another, there are limited options for seeking advice and knowledge from other in-house counsel. We’ve compiled a few networking groups and opportunities specifically for you. Each offering differs, so take a look to find out which groups are best for your needs.
So, after bringing you a list of reading recommendations and documentaries for the e-discovery enthusiast, we thought we’d help you spice up your next review project with a killer playlist. Here are some of the tunes that speak to our team—and others in the Relativity community—as they continue to improve their work in this field.
To get to the heart of how employees understand data privacy and how their online behavior at work can impact it, kCura recently commissioned a survey conducted by Harris Poll among 1,013 US adults age 18 and older who were employed full-time or part-time, working in a traditional office setting for at least 50 percent of the time, and are not freelancers (referred to as “employees” throughout).
Ahead of Relativity Fest London, here are four topics on the minds of UK e-disclosure experts in our community as they keep up with this evolving landscape, as well as a few tips on how you can learn more about each subject.
Nevertheless, many firms still consider cybersecurity a "should have someday"—as opposed to a "must have today"—goal. New York's Department of Financial Services (DFS), the state's financial regulator, has recently changed that thinking.
But what about the next generation of legal professionals? If you’re also an educator or a board member at a law school or paralegal program, as many practitioners are, you can help improve your legal education program by encouraging a greater emphasis on e-discovery. Here are some critical components of any good “Introduction to e-Discovery” course, and some tips on how to implement them.
This article was originally published on the FRONTEO blog. It's a good look at the many workflow components that can maximize your team's efforts during review, so we wanted to share it here as well.
The review phase of an e-discovery project can look and feel like a lap of a relay race, where the baton has been handed off and the rest of the team cheers from the sidelines. Yet, a truly successful review requires planning and continued buy-in among all stakeholders. This starts with the development of a workflow, or defined project timeline. By preparing ahead and sticking with this workflow, the team can work together as partners towards efficient, defensible productions.
