CLE: Starting and Running Your Own Practice

As with any significant business venture, there is a certain amount of planning that must go into organizing a law practice in order for it to be successful. Get the guidance you need on organizing, marketing, protecting, and profiting from a solo practice with this full-day seminar Feb. 8 in O’Fallon. Attorneys with all levels of practice experience who are interested in starting a solo practice and who attend this seminar will better understand: how to name your law firm and register it with the required agencies; how to safeguard your investment through malpractice insurance and other options; how having a website and advertising through social media can help your practice; the legal forms you need to get started, including sample contracts, petitions, and engagement letters; the challenges facing solo practitioners (from the judicial perspective); and how to manage the stress and demands of the profession.

The program closes with a look at the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct and how it plays an important role in ensuring that your business is ethically compliant.

The program is presented by the ISBA General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Section. It qualifies for 6.75 hours MCLE credit, including 0.50 hour Mental Health and Substance Abuse MCLE credit and 6.25 hours Professionalism, Civility, and Legal Ethics MCLE credit (subject to approval).
