About

Let's say you need the text of a regulation or statute. Both of these are "known knowns": legal materials that are known to exist. You can do that for free. Or maybe you're looking for caselaw that's on-point for your client's legal issue -- a "known unknown" because you don't know whether there is relevant legal precedent. You can also do this type of research for free. But what about the "unknown unknowns" -- questions such as: Have I retrieved all possible relevant cases? What are the seminal cases that should be cited? Are the cases I've retrieved still "good law"? Which cases apply or interpret the statute? How has the text of the statute section changed over time? These types of questions take time and effort to research. And money too, because you're probably going to have to turn to subscription-based services.

This session will cover:

How to find quality legal materials on the Open Web using Google
Reputable free legal websites
Tips for evaluating the trustworthiness of websites providing legal information
Selected subscription-based legal databases and how to get access to them
Examples of how Artificial Intelligence is aiding legal research
