Learn to unearth information FREE (or at low cost!) on the Net.
How is the Internet changing the way legal professionals need to research and run their practice in order to competently represent their clients? Are ethical or malpractice issues involved? Can failing to “google” as part of the due diligence process keep you from winning a case? What are the best research strategies and websites that will assist an attorney or paralegal in meeting their investigative research obligations? More and more lawyers are using social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn) for discovery, trial preparation, background checks, and locating missing persons. Don’t be left behind in exploiting this gold mine of information, but also learn about the ethical traps and practical risks of using these sites. Join two internationally recognized Internet trainers and authors as they show you how to be your own cyberresearcher and cyber-detective.
