Cybersleuth Guide to Internet Levitt RoschTomorrow, October 9, the State Bar is holding a seminar that may help you navigate the Internet in service of client and law practice.

I rarely mention State Bar CLEs, as their own marketing machine is pretty darn robust. But I am intrigued by this offering, which will be taught by Carole Levitt and Mark Rosch. (See more about them and their work here.) If those names sound familiar, it’s because they wrote a book on the subject. (Read down below to see how your CLE registration also gets you a copy of the book.)

The seminar is titled “The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet: Super Search Engine Strategies and Investigative Research.” A long title, but they plan to cover quite a bit. Here’s the description:

“Learn how the Internet is changing the way legal professionals need to research and run their practice to competently represent their clients. Find out if failing to ‘Google’ as part of the due diligence process could keep you from winning a case or successfully completing a transaction. Uncover the best research strategies and learn to master Google. Discover how attorneys are using free public record sites and sites with free ‘publicly available’ information, including social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Google Plus, and LinkedIn) for discovery, trial preparation, background checks, and locating missing persons.”
