“Going Small or Solo − Now What?” draws dozens of law students and alumni at SNESL and MSOL
Spearheaded by Alan J. Klevan, chair of the
MBA's Law Practice Management Section, the MBA recently hosted two
complimentary programs for law students and alumni at the
Massachusetts School of Law in Andover on April 3, and at Southern
New England School of Law in North Dartmouth on April 7.
"Attendance at the recent law school programs has been
tremendous," commented Klevan. "What I was more pleased with,
however, was the overwhelming response from the students. They were
enthusiastic, asked plenty of practical and topical questions, and
continued the discourse with the panelists until long after the
program had ended."
Faculty members addressed topics such as:
Benefits of an MBA membership;
Joining a firm versus hanging your own shingle;
Risk management and malpractice information for new
Technology for your practice; and
Managing partner and client expectations.
Based on the success of the pair of programs, several other
Massachusetts law schools are interested in hosting similar
programs in the fall.
"I can't thank the MBA and the presenters enough for their
support in making this program a reality. I hope we can take this
program to every law school in Massachusetts, with the ultimate
goal of this being a recurring event," concluded Klevan.
