The Posse List, an increasingly important resource for e-discovery generally and contract lawyers specifically, is publishing a series of interviews with EDD professionals. My interview appears today, An interview with Ron Friedmann of Integreon; the legal paradigm shift, predictive coding, document categorization, and more

In it, I explain my views of why the new normal will require law firms to deliver more value to clients. This will require more technology. In e-discovery, this means substituting technology for humans where possible. That said, my view is that it is “man and machine”, not “man versus machine”. I comment on early case assessment (ECA) and predictive coding, suggesting that they are more points on a continuum than different approaches. Both require significant human input and share the goal or automating document review.

Several other interviews appear this week at the Posse List and are worth reading.
