RAND Study


A 2012 study (Nicholas M. Pace & Laura Zakaras, Where the Money Goes: Understanding Litigant Expenditures for Producing Electronic Discovery, RAND Institute for Civil Justice (2012)), indicating that Document review accounts for 73% of Electronic Discovery costs, and concluding that “[t]he exponential growth in digital information, which shows no signs of slowing, makes a computer-categorized review strategy, such as predictive coding, not only a cost-effective choice but perhaps the only reasonable way to handle many large-scale productions.” 1
