After all these years, I’m going back to law school. I’m happy to announce I’m making my first appearance as a Guest Lecturer at Solo Practice University on Tuesday, January 12 at noon ET. After having numerous great conversations with SPU founder Susan Cartier Liebel by phone and email over the years, it’ll be tremendous fun to exchange our ideas with the whole Solo Practice community. Here’s the agenda we’ve prepared — we might not get to all of these topics, but we’ll cover as many as we can:
- Why the billable hour’s not dead — just irrelevant.
- Why process and systematization will change how legal work is done.
- Why “access to justice” no longer has to mean “access to a lawyer’” Will we see the demise of “Unauthorized Practice of Law” restrictions?
- How and why client collaboration will affect your practice.
- Are we finally ready for preventive lawyering, becoming full-time holistic legal health professionals?
- How will the introduction of Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia and China (BRIIC) into the global legal marketplace affect you and your practice?
- Why solos and small firms are the long-term future of the practice of law.
- Why law schools won’t change, but legal education will.
All the details of the Guest Lecture can be found at the SPU website. If you’re not currently enrolled at Solo Practice University but would like to access this event, log in to Facebook (or create an account) and become a fan. Hope you can make it next Tuesday!
