How to Admit Web Pages into Evidence  

Internet usage now permeates modern life, and the legal profession has paid a lot of attention to the discovery of traditional types of documents stored electronically. In spite of this, many courts still view evidence that comes directly from the Internet with suspicion.


For this reason it is not enough to know how to gather electronic information; one must also be able to convince a court to admit it into evidence. This CLE will discuss various ways to authenticate web pages into evidence.

Board of Governors Elections

On Monday, April 30, elections began for the 2012-2013 State Bar of Nevada Board of Governors.

There are no vacancies for District 2 (rural counties) or District 3 (Carson City).


The bar congratulates Ann Morgan, the incoming Board of Governors member for District 4 (Washoe County). Morgan was uncontested for the District 4 election.

Lionel and Molasky Receive Liberty Bell Award

Samuel Lionel and Irwin Molasky are the recipients of the 2012 Liberty Bell award. The award ceremony will take place in conjunction with the rededication of the Las Vegas Liberty Bell, on Friday, May 4, from 3 to 4 p.m., in Centennial Park.


In 2005, Molasky and Lionel founded Project REAL in an effort to teach Nevada students the importance of the law and its contribution to the American way of life. Project REAL educates K-12 students about the principles of democracy, law and the responsibilities of citizenship. Through a variety of programs, students are able to explore our judicial system, examine current controversial issues and become citizens who understand both their social responsibilities and rights.


Since 1983, the Annual Liberty Bell Award, a partnership between the Clark County Law Foundation's Let Freedom Ring Committee and the City of Las Vegas, has honored community leaders who promote a greater respect for government and the rule of law. For more information on the Clark County Law Foundation or the Liberty Bell Awards, contact Jade Deitrick at (702) 333-8277 or

Attorneys' Law Day Visits Had Great Impact on Students

On Friday, April 21 volunteer Nevada attorneys visited students in their classrooms in honor of Law Day.

The Law Related Education (LRE) Department of the State Bar of Nevada always needs attorney volunteers. Visit the state bar's website for a look at its LRE programs and to find out how to participate.
