Committee on Lawyers in Transition

2010 Career Development Series – Session Three

Opening Your Own Firm:
The Things They Never Told You and What You Forgot To Ask

Wednesday, May 12, 2010
12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
(Eastern Time)

Many great programs and books are available on the basic requirements for starting a solo or small law practice. Still, all experienced solo or small firm lawyers have lists of questions they wish they had asked, or things they never realized were important, until several years after opening their firms.

A panel of solo and small firm lawyers who successfully opened and maintain their practices will share what they learned “the hard way” with tips that will help smooth the way to getting your practice off to a good start.

Opera 10.52

Many people may know about the merits of the Opera browser, but this new release may offer long-time users and neophytes additional cause for pause. Beyond the usual features people have come to expect (i.e. tabbed browsing, mouse-over previews), Opera offers a new range of desktop widgets, file sharing utilities, and full-text searching from the address field. This version is compatible with computers running Mac OS X 10.3 and newer, Windows 2000 or newer, and Linux. [KMG]
