The Sedona Conference is a 501(c)(3) research and edu-cational institute that exists to allow leading jurists, lawyers, ex-perts, academics, and others, at the cutting edge of issues in the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation, and intellectual prop-erty rights, to come together in conferences and mini-think tanks called Working Groups to engage in true dialogue—not debate—in an effort to move the law forward in a reasoned and  just way. In just a few short years, the use of technology-assisted re-view (TAR) for the exploration and classification of large docu-ment collections in civil litigation has evolved from a theoretical possibility to an essential tool in the litigator’s toolbox. How-ever, its widespread application—and the realization of its po-tential benefits—has been impeded by uncertainty about its ac-ceptance by the courts as a legitimate alternative to costly, time-consuming manual review of documents in discovery. This Pri-mer  analyzes decisions from those courts that have been re-quired to opine on the efficacy of TAR in a variety of circum-stances and explores the evolution in the courts’ thinking from 2012 through the end of 2016. The Primer  is the product of more than a year of develop-ment and dialogue within WG1. It was srcinally conceived as a chapter of a larger Commentary on the use of TAR in civil lit-igation, but the rapid development of the case law, the volume of court decisions, and the importance of those decisions in shaping legal practice in real time required that an exposition of the case law be made available on a faster timetable than WG1’s usual dialogue and consensus-building process allowed.
