Today, I was announced as the latest in a growing number of working attorneys that are on the faculty at Solo Practice University – a truly unique resource that reflects today’s legal practice.
Solo Practice University (SPU) is a much-needed bridge between where you are (law student or attorney at a large firm) and where you want to be – a solo practitioner. When I was a prosecutor thinking about making the switch and hanging out my own shingle, I followed Susan Cartier Liebel’s blog, “Build a Solo Practice.” Even though I had been practicing for over 12 years, I was essentially starting over. Not from the law standpoint, but from the business side. I asked a few defense attorney friends in confidence about setting up a practice and they were invaluable. When I saw Susan’s post asking for faculty to join SPU, I didn’t hesitate to offer what I could. It’s my way of giving back. Now, instead of lunch with a group of buddies, I get to have a virtual lunch with the entire faculty and student body of SoloPractice U.
I look forward to it all. Can you pass the salt?
