The 2013 TREC Legal Track has been cancelled “because of ongoing unspecified problems with the data set,” Evan Koblentz reports TREC Legal Track co-organizer Professor Dr. Gordon Cormack as having said after a 29 January 2013 panel at the Legal Tech New York conference, according to Koblentz’s article, “LegalTech Day One: Relativity 8, Statistical Sampling, Law Firm Security,” Law Technology News, 30 January 2013.
This would be the second consecutive year in which TREC Legal Track has been cancelled.
The TREC Legal Track is a major legal information retrieval conference. Its findings have contributed substantially to research respecting electronic discovery (ediscovery).
