Navigating the New Town Square: Cultivating Competency in Basic Online Legal Research
Wednesday, August 17, 2022, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

For attorneys and for all individuals, our lives, professionally and privately, have expanded through the global power of the Internet. The vast amount of information available and the many different platforms to obtain that information have grown exponentially over the last 25 years. The many ways technology can aid attorneys and legal researchers in locating the best and most on point statutes, caselaw, secondary materials and all relevant materials can be overwhelming. The comments to the model rules of professional conduct governing attorneys state that to maintain competency a lawyer should keep abreast of the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology. The goal of this LexisNexis course is to assist attorneys and legal researchers in navigating online legal research, so they feel more confident and competent when researching subjects important to their work.

Please note: This program is only being offered as a simultaneous online webinar. Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits will be available for DOI Solicitor's Office attorneys attending this program. Please contact the Library to obtain webinar or CLE credit information for this program.
