A supreme team win for Law In Order's eDiscovery team, National Justice Project and Relativity for their work on a number of related cases focused on whether or not the Australian government owes a duty of care to people who are detained in offshore processing centres—specifically regarding standards of medical care for refugees and asylum seekers detained on Nauru.
“As a small non-for-profit charity, without RelativityOne and the help of Law In Order, we wouldn’t have been able to work on the discovery for the cases without having to spend big on technology and support. Law In Order has always been available to assist us – their team have been unbelievable. They’ve turned work around in no time, and they’ve taken all the worry of this discovery process away from us. Instead of wrangling with documents, now we can focus on arguing the case for our clients,” said Emma Hearne, Associate Legal Director, National Justice Project. She said that the technology enabled the NJP’s team and its army of volunteers to accomplish the huge task of discovery.
