Technology Assisted Review or (TAR) has been available as a tool in the e-discovery marketplace for roughly a decade.

Over time, much of the initial debate about the value of TAR fell away, particularly as more judges in U.S. courts identified TAR as the most sensible, efficient, and accurate process to review documents in the era of Big (and growing) Data. Now the discussion has shifted to TAR 2.0 and creating proposed uniform standards for TAR projects as the Duke Law Conference plans to do later this year.
