About LAW PreDiscovery
LexisNexis® LAW PreDiscovery® helps legal professionals and their service providers meet the
increasing demands in the discovery of printed and electronic documents. By integrating
production-level scanning with robust e-discovery and data processing features, LAW
PreDiscovery is optimized to enable scalable execution of even the largest discovery projects,
from running multiple computers to batch scan boxes of paper documents to importing millions
of e-mails and attachments from mail stores, to full text indexing, querying, and exporting to
many other popular litigation support applications.
In practice, LAW PreDiscovery supports these key discovery processes:
Prefilter large document sets
The LexisNexis® Early Data Analyzer and Lexis ® DiscoveryIQ modules are standalone
prefiltering modules available as a complement to the LAW PreDiscovery 6.0 suite. Use them
to implement high volume electronic discovery productions. DiscoveryIQ indexes, filters, and
produces export sets. Culled documents are passed directly to LAW PreDiscovery for full
expansion and production.
Creating and managing cases
LAW PreDiscovery® centers all activities, including data collection, processing, and export on
the case. Each case corresponds to a database file, which tracks all source files and
production files, including graphics and text.
In the process of creating a new case, you select a database engine, create and name the
database file, establish a folder structure for documents, and define any additional database
fields you will need later for coding. Optionally, to simplify future case creation, you can
create case templates that specify pre-defined options.
Acquiring documents
In this step you may do any of the following activities that bring documents into the case:
Import electronic discovery using ED Loader to extract text and to record document
metadata in the case database.
Scan paper documents to electronic format.
Import items and metadata from existing cases and load files.
Import existing TIFFs or other kinds of image files.
Assign custodians at the batch or source level.
Code documents with data fields.
Performing quality control
The exact nature and timing of quality control activities vary greatly, depending on the type
and quality of source documents. Quality control typically involves multiple activities spread
throughout the discovery project:
Error correction, for example: reviewing and fixing processing errors, keeping detailed
logs of warning and other error conditions, and alerting you to suspected file

LAW PreDiscovery
extensions.
Tag documents that contain specific text or metadata attributes for the purpose of
narrowing consideration to pertinent documents or pages.
Deduplicate files that were imported during electronic discovery.
Fix problems with TIFF files using built-in image cleanup tools.
Batch processing
Batch processing functionality helps to automate various processor-intensive jobs, including:
document numbering, image cleanup, endorsing, conversion to TIFF or PDF, printing, and
optical character recognition (OCR). LAW PreDiscovery lets you take batch processing to a
new level by combining the processing power of multiple computers to join distributed batch
processing of large jobs.
Exporting
LAW PreDiscovery provides a wide range of options for exporting to litigation support
applications in a variety of standard formats, including: native files, images, coded data, and
OCR text.
For information on LAW PreDiscovery and other litigation support products by LexisNexis,

About concurrent user licenses (Hardware Key licensing only)
Concurrent user licenses are only available with hardware key licensing.
The total number of user licenses controls the total number of users that may work concurrently in
LAW PreDiscovery and/or Early Data Analyzer. Concurrent licensing means that users can run LAW
PreDiscovery and/or Early Data Analyzer using any combination of licenses, at the same time. For
example, if a key contains 10 concurrent user licenses, and 3 workstations are currently logged into
LAW PreDiscovery, then 7 concurrent user licenses will be available at that time.
In the License Servers tree, the serial number of the license server key is listed with two numbers in
parentheses beside it. These two numbers reflect concurrent user license counts.
The first number indicates the number of concurrent licenses in use.
The second number indicates the total number of concurrent licenses contained on the server key.
For example, the '5' in (5/20) means that LAW PreDiscovery is running on 5 computers. The '20'
means that there is a total of 20 concurrent licenses on the key. In this example, you could conclude
that concurrent user licenses are still available.
The amount of concurrent user licenses that you may work with depends on a number of factors. If
more are needed, contact LexisNexis.

compound document
A document created in one application that contains information created in another
application. For example, a Word document can contain a worksheet developed in Excel.
When you import compound documents you can specify whether a compound document will
be extracted or not.
custodian
The party responsible for safe keeping of documents. In ED Loader, prior to importing, you
can identify the custodian responsible for source documents. You can also access the
Custodian Manager from ED Loader to manage the list of custodians available for a case.
After import, the Custodian field is locked by default.
You can update the custodian after import. To do so, unlock the field for editing (Index ->
Modify Fields), and then you can reassign the custodian manually by using the folder view
or Index tab. Or you can use the Batch Update utility accessible from a grid view.

LAW PreDiscovery
Typically a comma is used to separate values. A comma-separated value (CSV) file contains
comma delimited text. One of the six kinds of source files you can import into a LAW
PreDiscovery case.
DocExt
DocExt is the name for one of the fields in the case database. It’s an abbreviation for
‘document extension.’ See Document and Document Extension.
DocID
A unique value that LAW PreDiscovery assigns to each document in a case.
DocID seed

numbering before importing source docs into the case.
document
Used interchangeably with ‘file.’ a document is composed of one or more pages, has a
three-character extension, and a unique ID created during import.
document extension
The suffix added to a filename that identifies the format of its contents. For example, the
document extension of text files is TXT. During electronic discovery, LAW PreDiscovery
analyzes file contents and records the file extensions in the DocExt field. If a file’s contents
do not match the extension, the SuspectExt field is checked. For documents with suspected
extensions the OrigExt field is populated with the extension associated with the type of file,
as inferred by LAW PreDiscovery.
document numbering
One of the batch processes applied to the results of an import session. You can opt for
numbering each page of every document, placing the number that LAW PreDiscovery
generates in the PageID field, and specifying the serial number to start counting from.
document review software

to the results of an import session. You can opt for endorsing every image or PDF file or
only the first page of every image or PDF file.
e-print
One of the batch processes that you can run on electronic documents. Prints the native
document using application software external from LAW PreDiscovery.
ErrorMsg

utility you specify: the documents to be exported, the data fields and values of interest, the
export format, file name and path, and the naming scheme for exported files and folders.
field
One of the properties associated with a document or page. Examples include: document
identification number (DocId), page identification number (PageID), document file extension
(DocExt), etc. You use fields as a basis for filtering and analyzing documents. By default,
LAW PreDiscovery creates and populates many fields for documents and pages that it
processes. You can lock or unlock fields, or create new fields for your own purposes by
using the Modify Fields dialog box.
field list
A tool in the grid display you use to control which fields are visible in the grid. Checked
items are visible, unchecked are not. All the properties associated with a document. For
example the three fields in the screen shot tell you the date when a file was created, the
date for the last time it was modified, and the date when it was last printed. All of these
fields are populated by the operating system.

emails that were sent by an individual.
G–H–I
grid
A type of display in LAW PreDiscovery that enables you to view lists of document and page
records each in a single row in a table. You can configure grids to show whichever
metadata fields you are interested in. You can also define custom sorting and reuse saved
views.
The embedded grid is built into the main window of LAW PreDiscovery and is designed to
provide a snapshot view, showing just a few records and fields at a time. There is also a
standalone grid that runs in its own window and can be more useful for reviewing larger
record sets and more fields.
hash value
A value assigned to a particular document that uniquely identifies it. Hash values for files
are generated by the Deduplication utility to identify files suspected of being duplicates.
There is a slight margin of error when creating file hashes and this factor decreases with
the strength of the working digest used to create the hash. For most projects, configuring
the Deduplication utility to use 128-bit strength is sufficient to positively identify duplicates.
You can use a stronger digest for extremely high reliability but at a cost of processing
efficiency.
header/footer
Batch process for adding headers and footers to the image of a page before exporting.
image
One of the three options for viewing a document in LAW PreDiscovery. For example, the
image tab contains a picture of the document. The image is like a Xerox copy of a document.

Unicode Support
The general requirements and supported functionality for Unicode are listed as follows:
LAW PreDiscovery® versions 5.2 and higher support the Unicode® Standard.
Proper language packs must be installed for the associated Unicode characters to render
correctly.
To print Unicode text files, use either Microsoft Word or the Shell Printer as the source
application. The Text/RTF Printer can print RTF with Unicode, however it cannot print Unicode
text files.
If using the Shell Printer, you must ensure that the application registered on the system for
text files supports shell prints For example, Notepad supports shell prints.
The ExperVision and TextBridge OCR engines do not currently support Unicode.
Supported languages for OCR can be found in the Language drop-down list located in the
OCR tab in Tools -> Options.
Printed and extracted text will contain Unicode data if it exists in the original file and can be
displayed, provided the proper language pack(s) are installed on the system.
To view Unicode in a grid
In a grid view, rest the mouse pointer over a cell that contains Unicode characters.
The text appears in a pop-up text box.

Unicode in names for files, cases, and fields
Files with Unicode file names or residing in a Unicode path may be imported using the ED
Loader. These Unicode paths can be retained and displayed in the main folder view and
any other applicable folder view in the application. Unicode existing in the metadata will
be retained and can be displayed in the Index display.
Unicode is not supported in case names. While the rest of the case path can contain
Unicode, it is recommended the case paths do not contain Unicode characters to avoid
potential issues with 3rd party applications.
Index field names cannot contain Unicode characters.
Exporting Unicode data
Unicode data can be sent to the export file when exporting field data from a grid.
In the Save Results As dialog box, in the Save as type list, select Unicode Text (Tab
delimited)(*.csv).
Exporting Unicode
Export Formats
Unicode data is supported in the Export Utility in the following export formats:
CaseLogistix - Unicode is automatically included if present in the exported data.
Delimited Text - Unicode data will be included only if the Allow Unicode data (UCS-2
format) option is enabled in this format's configuration settings.
EDRM XML 1.0 - Unicode is automatically included if present in the exported data.
EDRM XML 2.0 - Unicode is automatically included if present in the exported data.
Concordance Direct DCB - Unicode data will be included only if LexisNexis Concordance

(supports Unicode is enabled in the configuration settings for that format.
Concordance - Unicode data will be included only if Allow Unicode data (UCS-2 format)
is enabled in this format's configuration settings.
Export Utility Restrictions
When using the Export Utility, if you export to a format that does not support Unicode
characters:
Do not use the Mirror Original folder naming scheme if Unicode folders exist in the
case.
Ensure the export path does not contain Unicode characters. Unicode paths and
filenames may prevent the target applications from opening associated images, text, or
native files.
