Culver City, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2005
The Internet research manual "How to Use the Internet For Legal & Investigative Research: A Guide for Legal Professionals" has been completely updated and expanded, it was announced today by the book's co-authors Carole Levitt, J.D., M.L.S and Mark Rosch. The guide features extensive reviews of the best legal and investigative research resources available for free on the Internet. Unlike others guides which present sites as little more than a list of links, this book offers tips on how to effectively use those sites and includes over 100 screen-shots to illustrate the step-by-step usage of many of the sites discussed. The book has more than doubled in size from previous editions, growing from 97 pages to 205 pages with the addition of more investigative research, public record and background research resources.
"Every legal professional, legal educator or consumer handling their own legal matter, can benefit from this guide, regardless of their previous Internet usage," said Levitt. "For experienced and intermediate web users, the guide offers primary and secondary sources of information, as well as research strategies to help them pinpoint the information they need. For novice web users, it has an introduction to the Internet and an extensive section on how to use their web browsers."
This new 7th Edition has been updated to include the newest Internet resources such as LexisONE.com and Accurint. Users can easily find the web sites they're looking for by jurisdiction, topic (e.g. Class Action resources), or by Web site name, in the guide's comprehensive index.
"Legal professionals who keep up with the rapidly changing resources on the Internet have a leg up on their competition," continued Rosch. "The content of the 7th edition has been tested and re-checked immediately prior to publication."
The suggested cover price of "How to Use the Internet For Legal & Investigative Research: A Guide for Legal Professionals" is $59.95. For a limited time, it will be available for the special introductory price of $39.95 from the publisherÂs web site (http://www.iflpress.biz) or by phoning 310/559-1632.
