Objectives

This outline is intended for accountants and other practitioners performing litigation support engagements.  Several different categories of information are presented.  Links are provided to other web pages on this web site.  The other web pages contain links to hundreds of other useful web sites maintained by others.  Given the time constraints for presentation, this outline presents only a few selections of particularly interesting web sites and does not attempt to provide a comprehensive list of all relevant sites.

An earlier version of this outline was presented at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) National Conference on Advanced Litigation Services in Dallas on October 25, 2001.  It was revised for the Florida Atlantic University Forensic Accounting Conference in Ft. Lauderdale on June 10, 2004.  This outline will be updated from time to time.

Suggestions for adding or changing links are welcome.  I do not charge fees for adding links, but I do reserve the right to exclude links that in my judgment are not relevant.  Please email suggestions to wyancey@aclrsbs.com
