We're Opening the Door to Solo Practice University™!
The door to Solo Practice University™ will open on:
Friday, March 20th at 12:00 noon EST
(12:00 p.m EST, 11:00 a.m. CST, 10:00 a.m. MT, 9:00 a.m. PST).
This winter was dramatic for the legal industry and all legal professionals. So it seemed appropriate (and irresistibly corny) for us to open the door to Solo Practice University™ on the First Day of Spring, the beginning of a season traditionally associated with promise, rebirth, renewal and growth.
For those who remain unfamiliar with Solo Practice University™, it is a web-based educational and professional networking community for lawyers and law students staffed with outstanding faculty ready to teach you how to create and build your solo practice into the 21st century. As Law is Cool noted:
The community will be composed of blogs, profiles, a messaging function, and interest-based user groups. SPU has already accumulated a faculty which rivals the size of some law schools, and is continuing to add to that number. It hopes to have a representation from a comprehensive list of professional fields by the time it is fully operational. Enrolment at SPU will be restricted to lawyers, law students, and recent grads; legal “outsiders” will not be admitted. Because the institution “is not a brick and mortar structure,” there is virtually no restriction on the size of both the faculty and the student body.
A very appealing quality of SPU is its thorough integration of social and professional aspects of legal practice. More than being just a “how-to” on practical topics, it will provide a means to network with other law students and lawyers, and will address issues like how to maintain a work/life balance.
We'll be posting more details including tuition costs as we approach our grand opening. So, if you are not already signed up to receive these notices, you can grab the RSS or drop your e-mail here.
Thanks again for your patience, your encouragement and your unbridled enthusiasm for what we are all going to create together.
Hope to see you on the first day of school at Solo Practice University™, Friday, March 20, 2009.
