This course focuses on practical skills, information, and strategies for students who may someday open their own solo or small law firm. We take a logical approach starting with the pros and cons of venturing out on your own followed by the steps needed to make it happen. The class covers a wide variety of topics including law firm entities, marketing, management, client interaction, work-life balance, and technology. The professor took this class himself years ago and opened his own law practice focusing on Internet legal cases and social media defamation. Lectures will be supplemented with guest speakers on specific topics and selected reading assignments. This class is pass/fail. Active participation in class and completion of assignments are required to pass. Students may only have one unexcused absence.
