Solo Practice: Building a Law Practice (SD 525)


This course is designed to take your passion and your skills and unite them to prepare you to develop your law practice. Most students in this class will start their own law firm, or enter a small firm where they are responsible for developing their own practice areas and client base. We will explore what is needed to run a successful business and be a successful lawyer in these changing times. At the conclusion of this course, you will have an understanding of the networking and marketing skills needed to build your practice, have a working knowledge of the finances needed to start and run a firm, and have a business plan to carry forward. There is significant overlap with "Law Practice Management." A student should not take both courses. Prerequisite: 3rd year status.
