Professor Maura Grossman has been recognized by eDiscovery Daily as a thought leader driving the development and application of electronic discovery, computer-assisted processes used to select and prioritize legal documents for review.
With her colleague Professor Gordon Cormack, Grossman published a landmark paper in the Richmond Journal of Law and Technology in 2011 titled Technology-assisted review in e-discovery can be more effective and more efficient than exhaustive manual review, a scholarly contribution that has been credited with creating the eDiscovery field. Their research has been cited in several cases of first impression in the U.S., Ireland, the UK, and Australia in which the use of technology-assisted review for civil litigation has been approved.
In addition to being a faculty member in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, Grossman is principal of Maura Grossman Law, an eDiscovery law and consulting firm based in New York, NY. Before joining the University of Waterloo, she was of counsel at the prominent law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.
