Best Practices for Collecting Information Using Public Records

Learn how to access public records for the purpose of collecting information.Public records are a fantastic resource to the public, reporters and the legal community. Records can be used to verify information you may already know, or to assist in the discovery stage of your proceedings. However, accessing those records can be, at times, cumbersome, and many do not understand what should be done if the information requested is denied. Many also do not understand what can or should be done if an exemption is cited by an agency in response to a request. This topic will help you understand what constitutes a public record and how to obtain access to those records. The material will provide insight into federal access laws as well as a survey of state laws and where to access particular information. It will explain how to solicit and respond to denials or redactions of information. The material also explains how records can be used in litigation to advantage those who utilize them.
