LexisNexis® Information Professional Update—November/December 2017

Helping lawyers navigate to vital information and drive results in the age of YouTube®

Thinking back on his education, award-winning judicial educator and practicing attorney Jim Wagstaffe says his favorite subjects were geometry and civil procedure. “More recently I’ve decided they are very much the same course,” he told us during an interview recently. “It’s about how things fit together and work.” Civil procedure requires a clear focus on essential facts and principles, along with the ability to put the pieces together. Success also requires a way to advance your case in a practical way. For all those objectives, Wagstaffe recommends using legal navigation tools—like a figurative GPS. The Wagstaffe Group® Practice Guide: Federal Civil Procedure Before Trial helps you navigate to your desired outcome by providing insights, tasks, checklists and even videos.  Learn how you can help lawyers test-drive the guide.
