Immediate need for a Law Clerk II to join a document review filter team assisting large scale white-collar fraud investigations in support of CACI's contract with the DOJ, Criminal Division.
What You’ll Get to Do:
The reviewers will review potentially privileged materials to determine whether a valid claim of attorney-client privilege or work product may be asserted, and to determine whether any exceptions to the privilege may apply. In most cases, tags will be created in Relativity to allow the filter review team to classify materials as: (1) non- privileged, (2) potentially privileged, and (3) presumptively privileged.
The Criminal Division’s Fraud Section (FRD) plays a unique and essential role in the Department’s fight against sophisticated economic crime. The Section is a front-line litigating unit that acts as a rapid response team, investigating and prosecuting complex white-collar crime cases throughout the country. The Section is uniquely qualified to act in that capacity based on its vast experience with sophisticated fraud schemes; its expertise in managing complex and multi-district litigation; and its ability to deploy resources effectively to address law enforcement priorities and respond to geographically shifting crime problems. These capabilities are an essential complement to the efforts of the United States Attorneys’ Offices to combat white-collar crime. The Section frequently coordinates interagency and multi-district investigations and international enforcement efforts. The investigations are complex and often result in the collection of millions of pages of documents per case.
Because many of the FRD Section cases’ targets and subjects involve the use of private law firms, the Section’s investigations are frequently confronted with issues concerning the applicability of attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine over materials obtained during the investigations. These privilege issues can be complex and require a review of these materials through a “filter review” process, whereby attorneys who are walled off from the investigation team review potentially privileged materials to determine whether a valid claim of privilege may be asserted.
