Strategies for Locating People Online for Paralegals

The internet is a big place. Find out where and how to search online to find even the most elusive people.

The world has gone electronic. Everyone has left an electronic footprint of some kind. This on-demand webinar focuses on the use of the Internet to locate people through various Internet connections. These skills are basic to every paralegal in their daily work. This on-demand webinar will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to use the Internet more effectively and more efficiently. It will show you numerous ways to locate people through avenues that you would not normally use. This on-demand webinar will also discuss, but not in great detail, finding company contact and corporate information. You will learn how legal information is organized on the Internet and how to retrieve the best results.

The cost of electronic information can be a burden on an attorney’s legal resources. Free legal Internet resources are tools that all paralegals should be able to use quickly and effectively. This on-demand webinar will show the free sites and search engines, and allow you to use the free sources whenever possible. It will also help you evaluate the paid sources and determine when to spend your attorneys’ dollars on research sites.
