You went to law school to learn how to practice law and not how to run a business.  But, like many, you may now find yourself running your own practice.  If you strive to sustain your practice, you must learn how to run it efficiently.  If you are not a born entrepreneur, but would like to learn how to run your practice like a business, then you may be interested in the new program presented by Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (LCL) and its Law Office Management Assistance Program (LOMAP).

“Your Law Firm is Your Business:  Managing Your Solo Law Practice” is a six week series designed for solo and small firm attorneys.  The program will address topics such as:

• Business Goals & Mission

• Creating a Brand and Establishing a Niche

• Marketing – online, in print, in person

• Networking & Mentoring

• Using Technology to Enhance All the Above

In a participatory group setting, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from a LOMAP law practice advisor and other attendees, as well as receive insight and guidance from an LCL staff psychologist.  Meetings will occur every other Friday during lunchtime (12:30 to 2 p.m.) beginning on March 15.  A commitment to all six meetings is requested.
