Overview

The law library of the future is already here! This down-to-earth, practical guide (written from the perspective of a working attorney) takes the problem-solving steps that lawyers already use and shows how-and where-to do them on the Internet. It zeroes in on the best sites, sources, and techniques for finding cases, statutes, regulations, legislative history, government forms, public records, other attorneys, experts, and more. It identifies the governments and agencies that accept online communication-not to mention filings-and lists research sites, legal news sources, and general reference aids. It also demystifies search engines and other Internet tools and recommends hundreds of Web sites for both legal and general research problems. Includes a painless crash course on using e-mail and news groups and maximizing the efficient use of web browsers. The Lawyer's Guide to Internet Research is a pioneering book that leads lawyers, paralegals, legal assistants, and students through the transition from traditional to Internet research, and teaches them how to use the Internet to do the same work that they have been doing for years in their offices and libraries. Look for periodic updates of this book in the virtual pocket parts at www.fortunaworks.com, which also offers a free bulletin board for Internet research questions.
