Data Access Requests - Two Sides of the Fence
Peter Gallagher, Central Bank of Ireland & Rob Corbet, Arthur Cox      

  • Companies are already struggling with increasing volumes of data access requests and access requests continue to account for over half of the complaints made to the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner each year.
  • The GDPR will extend the rights of data subjects beyond access to include rights of rectification, portability, objection and the "right to be forgotten".
  • Under the new regime, no fee will be payable, the time frame for responding will reduce to one month and the consequences of non-compliance will increase considerably.

Against this daunting backdrop, Rob Corbet and Peter Gallagher explore what companies can do to meet their existing obligations and how they should prepare the new requirements.

Access all areas: How technology
helps solve global ED challenges

We will explore how onsite and
mobile solutions can be used to bring
legal technology to bear in the most challenging of regions and matters, and the implications this has for the global legal landscape.

and walk through some real-life examples of the innovative use of technology from 2017.

eDiscovery Tools - What else can they be used for?

eDiscovery technology is not a 'one trick pony' it has many applications in other areas of law which include Data Access Requests, Contract Law, Employment Law, Fraud, Property & Corporation Law.
This presentation will provide some insight, as to how the technology is being depolyed to support lawyers complete core tasks which include:

  • Analytics
  • Categorisation
  • Due-diligence
  • Duplication
  • Redaction
  • Publishing



Augmented Intelligence changing the face of Investigations and Electronic Discovery.

Despite there being infinitely more data, we are expected to produce results twice as fast, with twice the accuracy, but with half the people, half the budget and in half the time. 

The only way to reduce time and costs while increasing productivity is to cut data down to only relevant documents as quickly as possible.

In order to this we must focus on an Augmented Intelligence strategy.
Augmented Intelligence combines machine learning, visualization and human intuition so we can surface patterns and insights in data faster than ever before.

It is this process that is the subject of this presentation.

The growing role of translation software in e-discovery, compliance and big data

Did you know that 80% of all litigation will be multilingual by 2020*?

Using real-world case studies, this session will explore how firms typically handle cases with foreign language data and the role that machine translation technology plays.

Recent advances in this area, particularly the advent of AI-powered translation, have made machine translation technology an integral tool in the arsenal of the e-discovery professional.

We'll also take a sneak peak under the hood and show how machine translation technology works for certain languages and applications.

Coffee & Networking


Document Production Obligations in Civil Discoveries Versus Regulatory and Criminal Investigations.

  • Data collection techniques
    • Self-collect versus forensics
  • Legal imperatives
    • Standards of Proof - narrower or wider net?
    • Potential prosecution for non-cooperation versus cost orders
  • Legal consequences for failure to produce documents
    • Civil consequences versus criminal consequences
    • Technology approaches
      • Differing time dynamics
      • Different areas of concern
      • Relevance is in the hands of the beholder
  • Dynamics with opposing party
    • Discovery is based on what solicitors think they may find, investigations start that way, but grow into a detailed analysis of what they have actually found.
    • Need to be much more pro-active with investigations

Senior Manager Data Projects, A&L Goodbody


Panel Discussion

Panel to discuss a range of issues, including cases, activities and trends from an Irish and International point of view:

  • Brexit
  • The proper level of process transparency required of those who deploy machine intelligence (i.e., TAR) in lieu of lawyer judgment. in data collection and review
  • The interplay between personal privacy and the needs of litigations to obtain probative evidence. We must fully grasp what is technical feasible--and the potential for misinterpretation and abuse
