Nebraska Bar Association & Internet for Lawyers Team Up for Live MCLE Program on Friday, November 20, in Omaha
“The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet” live continuing legal education presentation will be held in Omaha, on Friday, November 20, 2009. The seminar will be held at the Holiday Inn Convention Center; 72nd and Grover Streets; Omaha, NE 68124. For more information, including pricing, visit the Nebraska Bar Association’s Web site - http://bit.ly/1gvvI.
Effective Internet searching should be a part of every lawyer's due diligence routine. The morning portion of the seminar will explore the best search engine strategies (including advanced search features at Google and other search engines) to help attendees meet their research obligations. These search engine strategies also serve as the essential building blocks for conducting effective research at other Web sites. The program also addresses the lawyer’s "duty to google" and court decisions where attorneys were admonished (and lost cases) because they failed to include effective Internet research as part of their due diligence process.
Because a lawyer's research involves much more than just finding cases and statutes, knowing how to mine the wealth of information that people post on the Web can be a boon to attorneys who need to find background information about a person or to locate a subject. Whether it’s a transactional lawyer looking for information on a company, a consumer attorney tracking down a defective product, a matrimonial attorney searching for a spouse's assets, or a litigator looking for a missing witness, the Internet can be an indispensable source of information. The afternoon portion of the seminar will focus on locating and extracting that information from specific Web sites. The seminar will also include a special focus on locating information contained in Social Networking sites and ways legal professionals have used that information to benefit their cases.
Attendees will receive a copy of Carole Levitt and Mark Rosch's newly-revised, 400-page book, The Cybersleuth's Guide to the Internet, 10th edition (http://www.netforlawyers.com/prod01.htm) - a $59.95 Value.
The seminar will be held at the Holiday Inn Convention Center; 72nd and Grover Streets; Omaha, NE 68124. For more information, including pricing, visit the Nebraska Bar Association’s Web site - http://bit.ly/1gvvI.
