New State Bar E-Newsletter, WisBar InsideTrack – Will Contribute Legal Research Tips

This morning the State Bar of Wisconsin distributed its first issue of a new electronic newsletter called WisBar InsideTrack. The newsletter, which will be published twice a month on the first and third Wednesdays, is available to State Bar members.
Content will include everything from “practice management tips to timely insight into legislative, court, and other legal developments, as well as the latest State Bar products and services designed to help you improve your practice. Through an alliance with West, each issue of InsideTrack also delivers select jury verdicts, bench decisions, settlements, and arbitration awards.”
I’m pleased to share that I’ve been asked to be a regular contributor to InsideTrack for the Legal Research category. I’ll be writing a short article for every other issue. My first article, entitled The Many Faces of Google, describes a few of the search engine’s more specialized tools and how attorneys can use them. They include:

  • Google Alerts
  • Google News
  • Google Blog Search
  • Google Scholar
  • Google Books
  • Google U.S. Government Search
