Data Analytics in Litigation

The Institute’s director, Dr. Michael Rappa, was in midtown Manhattan today to participate on a panel of experts to discuss the implications for the legal professional of the rapidly expanding volumes of data used in litigation. The keynote panel, held at the ALM Legal Analytics and the Business of Law Summit, also featured ARPC partner Amy Brockman; Anthony Battista, a partner at Condon and Forsyth; and David Pluchinsky, a partner at Bierne, Maynard and Parsons. With the amount and complexity of data involved in the discovery process—especially in large scale litigation like class-action law suits—lawyers are finding themselves increasingly in need of analytics professionals to help understand the facts and build a case.
