Solo Practice University - "The Education"

(UPDATE:  7/14/08) This post has been updated to reflect the new faculty additions.  Bookmark and check often as we continue to add outstanding faculty.

I wanted to share the most recent post from Building Solo Practice University because if you haven't signed up to follow the construction yet, now may be the time . You can subscribe to the RSS on our Tumblr blog. If you’d prefer to subscribe to construction updates by email, drop your email in the widget to your right -------->

And this post also reflects an update to the original post, too, which you can see in highlights:

                                The 'Practice of Law' School  - The Education                           

Our mission is simple:

Education combined with community presented to you in a revolutionary new web-based  application.

David, my kiteboard-riding, backpack-toting, flip-flop-wearing tech-hero, will continue to update you on the technology we will be using to make your experience at Solo Practice University™ top shelf.

My pleasure is to keep you posted on the incredible education you will be receiving.

This summer we will be introducing you to the faculty.  I promise you will be blown away.  I still have a hard time imagining all of these professional superstars in one place teaching you on an on-going basis.  Finally, a virtual community where you can learn ’how to’ build your solo practice while becoming the best lawyer you can be in your chosen practice area(s).

So, let’s start with the topics (in no particular order) for which we have one or more faculty already in place:

Practice Areas:

  • Internet Law
  • Criminal Law (Defense/Prosecution)
  • DUI

  • Intellectual Property
  • Employment
  • Appellate Procedure
  • Personal Injury
  • Product Liability
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Trusts & Estates
  • Contract Lawyering
  • Surrogacy/Adoption

  • Evidence in the Court Room

The Business:

  • Niche Practice Creation
  • Collaboration
  • Blogging
  • Sales/Networking

  • Internet Marketing


  • Technology in the Courtroom

For Law Students & Work/Life Balance:

  • “Staying at Home, Staying In the Law”
  • Non-Traditional Law Students Entering Solo Practice
  • What Happens When You are in the Bottom Third of Your Law Class?
  • Mindfullness & Stress Reduction For Lawyers

We also have several incredible professionals lined up as guest lecturers from all walks of business life which really drives home the point…opening a solo practice is a business.  We want you to have a true business education.

Solo Practice University™ is not a brick and mortar structure so we can ‘house’ as many faculty as we choose.  Therefore, this list of faculty and topics is by no means exhaustive.  We will not be limiting the number of faculty in any given area because this will be a place of ideas, opinions, debate, different skills sets, perspectives; a community of peers with a single passion - building their solo practice or helping you to build yours.

Therefore, I am extending an invitation to the more than 750 current subscribers to this construction blog: If you would like to teach at Solo Practice University™ or know of someone who would be an asset to this community of solo/small firm lawyers and professionals, feel free to contact me to discuss the possibilities.

Yours truly,
