The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet
Featuring Carole A. Levitt and Mark E. Rosch


Thursday, Jan. 28, 2010 NC Bar Center Cary
CLE Credit: 6.0 Hours Plus 5 Video Replays

Learn how the Internet is changing the way attorneys need to research in order to competently represent their clients – and to avoid ethical or malpractice issues. Do lawyers have a duty to Google? In a recent decision, the court was incredulous that a plaintiff failed to Google the missing defendant as part of his due diligence process and upheld the defendant’s claim of insufficient service of process. Effective Internet searching may now need to become part of every lawyer’s due diligence routine. Learn the best research strategies (including advanced search features at Google and other search engines) that can help you meet your research obligations. Nationally recognized Internet trainers and authors of The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet will show you how to find and use specific Web sites to unearth factual and investigative information FREE (or at low cost!) on the Net. Instead of first turning to experts, consultants, skip tracers, and private investigators, seminar attendees will quickly learn how to be their own Cybersleuth.

I will probably get more use out of the content of this seminar than any other CLE seminar in 25 years of law practice. This is one of the very best I have attended. No temptation to leave early. I had no idea the web was so extensive – thanks for the tour!
