A New Season
By Rita Dermody
September is a month of new beginnings — a new school year, a new season. In the Law Library we are introducing two new classes.
The first is "Hiding Your Trail!: Smart Online Sleuthing," taught by Kim Ositis. Kim has taught variations of her Skiptracing class for many years. In "Hiding Your Trail," Kim will offer her favorite websites for accessing free background information on individuals and businesses, with specific emphasis on tips for using anonymous search engines in order to protect your privacy and ensure attorney/client confidentiality.
Also new this fall is "Filing & Finding Trial Documents in King County," taught by Craig Burgess and Stina Van Patten. As King County courts have implemented electronic filing, the Law Library has offered classes in e-Filing, "Electronic Court Records (ECR) Online," and "District Court Online Records." "Filing and Finding Trial Documents" reviews these three services, as well as accessing Washington Courts Case Searcher. This class is 90 minutes, designed to introduce beginning paralegals and attorneys to King County's most useful electronic tools.
Check our website www.kcll.org for the availability of these classes and others. They fill up quickly. For your convenience, we also offer classes utilizing WebEx. We announce the upcoming classes in E-News. Call the library to subscribe if you aren't already on the mailing list.
Mark your calendars. The Law Library will close its doors for one day on September 23 for an in-service training for the library staff. We bring in speakers on court procedures or topical issues such as landlord-tenant law. This allows everyone to participate. It also gives us an opportunity to do chores that are difficult to accomplish when patrons are visiting the library.
See you in September.
