The Business of Being a Lawyer, geared towards managing law school debt, career management, and the business side of being a lawyer. The seminar is designed to educate and prepare new attorneys on practical business issues that law schools too often fail to address. The seminar will address how new lawyers can manage increasing student debt while starting a new career or starting their own practice. New Lawyers are encouraged to attend the special seminar to get the answers to their business related questions as well as to receive tips from professionals on how to start your own practice, increasing your business, and getting a business loan despite the astronomical student loan debt new lawyers may have accumulated.
