How to Become Your Own Cybersleuth!

How to Do Fast, Effective and Free Internet Investigative Research
In this fast-paced half-day seminar the presenters discuss Internet search strategies that will help you uncover information important to your clients’ matters and find crucial information that you might otherwise miss. You’ll learn how to use free public record sites and sites with free “publicly available” information (including social media sites) for discovery, trial preparation, background checks, and for locating missing persons. And you’ll discover the advantages – and limitations – of data broker databases.

Your Presenters
Carole Levitt, Esq.,
and Mark Rosch, internationally recognized Internet trainers and authors of seven American Bar Association Internet research books, will show you how to be a cybersleuth and unearth information for free or at low cost on the Net. Don’t be left behind in exploiting this gold mine of information!
