Does solo practice appeal to you? Have you thought about serving the growing moderate means income community who can’t afford going legal rates but make too much money to qualify for legal aid? If you’re curious to learn what it takes to launch such a practice, you should join us, October 28, for How to Hang a Shingle, a program developed by the Center for Professional Development and the Access to Justice Institute.
This full day program is designed to provide meaningful, practical advice and information to students and new attorneys about starting a solo practice. It will also provide information for those dedicated to serving the public interest but, due to the difficult economy, have not been able to practice in legal services. “Low bono” is a term used to describe providing discounted rates to under-represented clients. This program will also discuss how a low bono practice can be a viable way to have a solo career.
