PANEL: Mentoring Solo Practitioners: Applying Knowledge to Practice
During the past five years, an estimated 4,800 law school graduates began their careers as solo practitioners, and many attorneys left larger practices to start their own practice. How do they begin this journey? How do they understand and apply best practices in the "business of law"? How may they identify and engage a mentor or a coach to be their "sounding board" and what topics should they address? Join this discussion to learn about models for effectively engaging solo practitioners and helping them to apply the knowledge to start and grow their own practice.
