In this podcast, Paul shared his experience of using predictive coding in the international arbitration document production process and explained how this technology works in practice.  He also elaborated on the benefits for lawyers, arbitrators and clients of using this technology, which include increased efficiency, certainty and cost-saving. 

Paul explained the current legal status of predictive coding in court procedures by reference to recent case law.  He then described how the existing legal framework in international arbitration permits and encourages the use of predictive coding.  Paul forecast that predictive coding and related technologies will become more prevalent in international arbitration practice going forward.
