Solo and Small Firm Seminar
Sponsor
Feb. 5 & Feb. 6: Two-Day Case Western Reserve University School of Law Career Services Office Seminar
FEB 5, 2010
11:00 AM - 4:15 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
This seminar will focus on key issues for attorneys who are thinking about establishing their own practice in Ohio and for attorneys who are already practicing in a solo or small firm setting. The seminar will address broad topics such as the challenges of competing with large law firms and the concept of functioning as a general practice attorney. At the same time, attendees will learn necessary nuts and bolts for functioning as a small practice in Ohio, including tax obligations, practice management, financing, and technology. Speakers who will lead the discussions all have experience at solo and small practices, most within the state of Ohio. Carolyn Elefant, author of "Solo by Choice: How to Be the Lawyer You Always Wanted to Be" will speak on both days.
