With the legal job market remaining incredibly competitive for the foreseeable future, an increasing number of recent law school graduates are opening solo or small-firm law practices. For those of our graduates who are contemplating going solo or those with their own practice, Hofstra Law is offering a series of panel discussions that will focus on the nuts and bolts of developing your own practice.
A primer on a variety of business matters related to starting your own practice, including law firm finances and accounting, human resources issues, office space, malpractice coverage, advertising and marketing.
