In a world of “Big Data,” where data volume and variety is growing rapidly--both lawyers and experts must be increasingly efficient (and cost-effective) in identifying the data necessary for a litigation and integrating those disparate data into compelling arguments. The novelty and complexity of Big Data is relevant to:
- strategic decisions made during the discovery process;
- the need to potentially develop and present to the courts more sophisticated models and analyses; and
- reliance on new software and hardware tools to process data
In this live webinar, economic and legal experts will discuss key concepts relevant to the use of Big Data in litigation, and present real-world case studies to illustrate the advances and challenges in the area.
