Legal research often conjures up images of assistants scurrying to find case law, related statutes, regulations to prove an argument, or an attorney receiving a message on their Blackberry in the courtroom with the necessary information to win the case. Yet legal research encompasses so much more.

What's Inside:

"Experts are another hot resource for legal researchers. However, be cautious when engaging an expert for legal research as industry insiders sometimes refer to these ‘experts' as ‘sexperts' because many choose to prostitute themselves out for money instead of integrity and knowledge. However, a few bad apples have not spoiled the whole bunch. Certainly there are experts who are not motivated to provide expert testimony because of the money, and they can contribute much value to a case by way of their expertise."
