A strong case is built on a solid foundation. Paralegals, this On-Demand Webcast is your step-by-step guide to conducting cost-effective, reliable, and thorough research. Our presenters start at the beginning: before you can fully develop your theory of the case, you need to confirm that the theory is supported by case law. You need to plan and organize your legal research to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the issues in your matter. Learn how to find and review the appropriate sources of law and how to refine your search to make certain you have the most current and relevant authorities to support your position.
  • Understand how to identify the relevant issues in the matter
  • Hear tips on available and useful research tools
  • Learn best practices from our experienced presenters on how to research a legal issue through the use of a fact scenario
