The Business of Law: Strategies for Starting Your Own Law Firm

February 3, 2011

On January 25, 2011, the Women in the Profession and Solo & Small Firm Management Committees teamed up to host a panel to discuss the strategies for starting your own law firm.  Several solopreneurs were on hand to share their personal experiences in starting their own practices and to answer questions about law firm marketing, finances, and the many benefits of being a sole or small firm practitioner.

For those who missed it, the Philadelphia Bar Association will publish the podcast soon.  In the meantime, the following is a list of reference materials that was distributed to the group:
