Fact Finding: Locating and Researching People: Home


Fact finding is critical in the legal profession, especially in the digital age. This guide should prove useful to law students in that it prepares students for a more practical, nuanced lawyering skill that is not focused on in the classroom. This guide should also prove useful to attorneys and other legal professionals, including legal secretaries and paralegals, as it identifies ways to improve skills for investigating the strengths and weaknesses of a myriad of issues, including a client's case, potential lay witness testimony, potential expert witness testimony, juror investigation, and more. Finally, this guide should prove useful to the general public when conducting online inquiries about their access to public records.
