Second Acts Seminar and Reception at Cravath - May 6, 2010

The Legal Aid Society was awarded a three year grant funded by the Pro Bono Institute in Washington, D.C., to establish a "Second Acts®" program - an innovative and replicable model to engage transitioning and retired attorneys in significant, volunteer public interest law opportunities.

The 2010 Legal Aid Society's Second Acts® Seminar and Reception is being hosted by Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP in New York City on Friday, May 6, 2010. Transitioning and retired attorneys are invited to attend.

The May 6th program will focus on how transitioning or retired attorneys can develop a pro bono practice at The Legal Aid Society. The informal roundtable will be led by a panel of current “Second Acts” attorneys who have been assisting The Society in a variety of pro bono capacities. The interactive dialogue will provide information on The Legal Aid Society's Second Acts® Program, the challenges of transitioning into public service, and ideas about how to get started on this new professional stage of your career.

Interested attorneys can RSVP with Rosemary Hare-Bey at Rharebey@legal-aid.org.

Opening Your Own Firm - The Things They Never Told You and What You Forgot to Ask

Many great programs and books are available on the basic requirements for starting a solo or small law practice. Still, all experienced solo or small firm lawyers have lists of questions they wish they had asked, or things they never realized were important, until several years after opening their firms.

A panel of solo and small firm lawyers who successfully opened and maintain their practices will share what they learned “the hard way” with tips that will help smooth the way to getting your practice off to a good start.
