Carole Levitt and Judy Davis, co-authors of Internet Legal Research on a Budget (ABA 2014) and Mark Rosch, co-author of The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet (IFL Press 2014) present Internet Legal Research on a Budget on Saturday, September 13th, 10 am-12 pm.
Are you an attorney who didn’t pay enough attention in your first year Legal Research class and now realize you should have? Or do you know all about the Internet but want to learn how to use new legal and investigative research sites that are free and low-cost (and even established sites that you have yet to try out)? Or, did you attend law school before computers existed, much less the Internet? Then this seminar is for you!
In partnership with Internet for Lawyers this class will provide instruction and tips from recognized Internet research authorities: Carole Levitt and Judy Davis, co-authors of Internet Legal Research on a Budget (ABA 2014) and Mark Rosch, co-author ofThe Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet (IFL Press 2014).
This class will be videotaped. By registering for this class you consent to the use of the videotape by the presenters for future educational or commercial purposes.
