Large cases take tremendous amounts of time for discovery, especially when document proliferation has reached an all-time high. However Everlaw has been refining its discovery software into a predictive coding, translation and case outline tool that has redefined legal technology again.
Key Features of Everlaw
1. Translation Added
Everlaw has added an automatic translation feature into its software that not only translates, but does so by automatically detecting the language and performing automatic translations. Through the automatic language detection and translation procedure, Everlaw then annotates the document set of the same language into groups. It then determines whether the documents are primary to your investigation and relevant.
With this amazing new feature with up to 53 programmed languages you can filter documents per language, group them together, analyze their relevance and send them to an appropriate reviewer. The software however, is not meant to do machine translation of documents; you will still need separate translation services for those documents that are deemed relevant.
2. Predictive Coding Engine
The Everlaw software is based on a continuous active learning system that allows the software to actually learn based on previous searches that you have done. Essentially the more you use the software, the better and more accurate it becomes at finding relevant documents for your cases based on your criteria and its predictive coding engine.
By using the software’s smart interface you can generate prediction models based around any pair of classifications that is relevant to your actual case. The prediction models begin automatically as soon as you start conducting reviews and searches within the documents. This way, those documents that are not relevant as you have already established, provide a learning curve for the program to sort out and cull all the non-relevant documents based on your own search criteria.
Yet, what if you are short on time and have not had time to start reviewing documents or conducting searches? The predictive coding is still applicable and useful. Simply choose the variables that you believe are relevant to your deponent and conduct a search of documents not yet reviewed with a relevant score of 75% or greater. Afterwards, conduct a search of those predicted to be not relevant at 25% or below and spot check those documents. If the check supports the prediction model you can move on quickly.
While you prepare your case, often you make an outline and follow it to the cases conclusion. Within the software this can also be used to help organize your searches for discovery enabling clean and efficient lines of questioning, searching and analysis of the documents.
Through building your evidence as you would your case in court, it enables a much better cohesive argument to form at an earlier stage in the process. Story building helps you weave a compelling narrative using the evidence based in the documents that you have reviewed and searched during discovery with Everlaw. See the StoryBuilder overview here.
Information Overload Made Easier
Everlaw software is transforming how attorneys handle information overload. Instead of hiring a hundred interns, you can now have an easy to use software application to ensure nothing is missed in discovery.
