How to do Fast, Free, and Effective Internet Investigative Research

December 3, 2019

In this fast-paced seminar, you will learn some of the best Internet search strategies and sources for finding crucial information that you might otherwise miss. You will also learn how to use free public record sites and sites with free “publicly available” information (including social media sites) for discovery, trial preparation, background checks, and for locating missing persons. Hidden Google search features and shortcuts to speed up your research will be revealed, and you will discover the advantages—and limitations—of data broker databases. Don’t be left behind in exploiting this gold mine of information!
