2024 eDiscovery Today State

The 2024 eDiscovery Today State of the Industry Survey!: eDiscovery Trends

Announcing the 2024 eDiscovery Today State of the Industry Report Survey (once again sponsored by EDRM).  This survey is designed to poll eDiscovery professionals throughout the industry and get their experiences on a variety of topics designed to inform and educate the industry on these trends overall.

As always, the 2024 eDiscovery Today State of the Industry Report Survey consists of ten questions, plus one sponsor bonus question and should literally take 1-2 minutes to complete. In addition to a couple of demographics questions, there are questions related to the following topics:

  • Personal Experience with LLM and Generative AI Technologies
  • Impact of LLM and Generative AI Technologies on eDiscovery Offerings in 2024
  • The State of Legal Technology In-Person Conferences
  • Use of Predictive Coding Technologies and Approaches
  • Discovery From Mobile Devices
  • Discovery From Collaboration Apps
  • Use Cases for eDiscovery Technology and Workflows
  • Biggest eDiscovery Related Trends for 2024
  • The eDiscovery Challenge That Not Enough People Are Talking About

Most of these questions have been repeated from last year, while there are two new questions related to this year’s “elephant in the room”: large language models (LLMs) and generative AI! These two questions replace the remote work and in-person conference questions we have asked (in varying forms) over the last three years. Those questions are “so 2020”! 😉

In addition, EDRM (who has graciously agreed to sponsor and promote the survey again) has asked a bonus question to gather information from industry professionals:

The 2024 eDiscovery Today State of the Industry Report Survey will be conducted for several weeks and will be concluded when there is a statistically significant number of responses (hopefully, no later than early December).

The results will be published in the 2024 State of the Industry Report in January of next year.  However, that’s not all that will be included in the report!  It will also include observations from selected thought leaders about some of these topics as well!  So, it should once again be a unique report combining a statistical representation of the industry with expert observations!
