The Four Corners of a Solo Practice

Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2013 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM
Venue: Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $30.00


For the longest time, the working title for this presentation was “Law Office in a Box.”  We thought about providing material that would give step-by-step guidance in how to open up a law hang out your shingle, as is were.  But, there is many a seminar from Minnesota CLE that tell you how to do that.  At its most basic, the profession of practicing law only takes a license, a laptop computer and printer/scanner a telephone, an address from which to send and receive mail and confidence that you will generate enough business to live comfortably.  It costs about $6,000 to get started.  Since the practice of law is both a profession and a business, the next logical step after hanging out your shingle is to score your solo practice and benchmark it against your own experience and the experience of your peers, and this CLE talks about measurement tools to facilitate that.

* In addition to earning 1 CLE at this session, attendees will have a chance to win the new 2014 QuickBooks Pro Software package.  Don't forget to bring your business card for the drawing bowl! Must be present or on the phone to win *
