This dynamic, practical class will help set students up for long-term success in private practice and position them for leadership opportunities and community engagement. Billable hours are important, but they don't tell the whole story. We'll delve into the intricacies of billable hours and law firm economics to learn how and why billable hours matter. Then we'll look beyond the clock to explore how you can create a more fulfilling and impactful practice. Through hands-on sessions and select guest speakers, we will cover topics such as professional and business development, leadership opportunities, community engagement and non-profit board service, as well as navigating life and career changes. This class aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to take control of their professional journeys, balancing the demands of billable hours with a holistic, big picture approach to professional growth.
