On June 27, 2012, the National Business Institute is sponsoring a seminar in San Diego entitled, “Find it Free and Fast on the Web: Strategies for Legal Research on the Web.” Albeit the seminar carries a $339 registration fee, the NBI is offering the seminar for six (6) California CLE credits. I’m planning on attending, so save yourself the registration fee and I’ll offer up a full report.
An excerpt of the program description follows, and for a link to the registration site, click here.

Do you know the best, most efficient ways to get what you need? At this informative seminar, we can show you how to harness the internet as an excellent resource. Register today!
