Two free CLEs, a low-cost personalized marketing video, a free professional headshot, a chance to learn more about new and existing MSBA products and services, and assistance creating or updating your MN Find a Lawyer profile.

CLE #1

(9:00 AM): What Really Works: High Impact Low Cost Strategies for Lawyers

In order to attract new clients, lawyers need to understand marketing. Most lawyers quickly acknowledge marketing is not something they learned in law school and that "doing marketing" doesn't always come naturally to them.   
In this CLE we will focus on the "best of the best" strategies for lawyers based on real-world results.
