In the decade since its launch, Google has become synonymous with searching on the Internet. This book unleashes the full power of Google as a search engine and, as a provider of free and low-cost tools that can help any attorney compete with large firms and their large research and technology budgets.

Google for Lawyers: Essential Search Tips and Productivity Tools introduces novice Internet searchers to the diverse collection of information locatable through Google. The book discusses the importance of including effective Google searching as part of a lawyer's due diligence, and cites case law that mandates that lawyers should use Google and other resources available on the Internet, where applicable. For intermediate and advanced users, the book unlocks the power of various advanced search strategies and hidden search features they might not be aware of.

Designed to help lawyers learn how they can put all of Google's power to work in their practices, Google for Lawyers: Essential Search Tips and Productivity Tools will also unlock access to various free Google services. From the lesser-known Google Voice, Google Wave, and Google Translate to the better-known office applications such as Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Calendar, these services can make novice, intermediate, and advanced users alike, more productive attorneys.

What Others Are Saying About Google for Lawyers: Essential Search Tips and Productivity Tools

"A great wake-up call for those of us who think we know a little about Google and how much it does. I thought I was pretty good at tracking down information with this multipurpose tool, but I learned I didn't know the half of it.--Barbara Cashman Hahn, The Colorado Lawyer

"I recommend the book for both firm and academic law libraries. Practicing attorneys will appreciate the authors' pragmatic advice for using Google products to save both time and money. Law students will be interested in learning more about Google's role in their future law practicesa judgment I make based on the number of questions I received from students who simply noticed the book sitting on my desk. The information in the book should also prove valuable in legal research classes, where it can be used to help teach students to conduct proper and efficient web research.--Kurt Meyer, Law Library Journal
