Building Better Briefs: Legal Research & Citation Tools on the Internet

Tomorrow morning I'm speaking at the Wisconsin Solo and Small Firm Conference. My presentation is entitled Building Better Briefs: Legal Research and Citation Tools on the Internet. I placed the slides up on Scribd.

There is a lot of great legal information on the Internet, but it's important that you know how to find it and evaluate it. I'll be offering tips on evaluating Web content and exploring some advanced Google options for finding it.

I'll also be sharing advice on how to access the 84% of Web content that can't be found via search engines like Google--a.k.a. the Invisible Web.

Finally, I'll wrap up with a discussion of some legal citation tools that can help you organize, check, and even auto-create a citation list for you.

Any WisBlawg readers attending the session-- please stop me and say hello. Or you can catch me at the Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin booth Friday afternoon.
