I have a couple of quick announcements about some upcoming appearances.
On Monday, March 30, I’ll be speaking at American University Washington College of Law on Solo Practice: Why This Ugly Stepsister of the Legal Profession Just Might Be A Prince in Disguise. We’ll cover reasons why solo practice offers opportunities for entrepreneurs and employment-seekers alike and how to get started if that’s the route you take. The event is from 4-6 and it’s free, plus there’s a reception thereafter. If you’d like to sign up, click here (go to events for 3/30 and click on the Nuts & Bolts Solo event). I really look forward to meeting you.
I’ll be at the ABA Tech Show from April 2-4, 2009. You’ll find me at various TweetUps and sitting in on a couple of courses. But if you’d like to meet up, just send me a DM at @carolynelefant. Would love to see you in person.
Finally, I’m excited to announce that I am teaming up with Julie Tower Pierce, author of Staying at Home, Staying in the Law and the Darlinghill website on what will be the first of a series of in person (and perhaps eventually) online workshops entitled "Pinkslips, Detours & OnRamps:
Restart, Recharge or Reinvent Your Legal Career On Your Own Terms." Julie is one of the few experts on women lawyer careers with a view towards the multiple and innovative options, no matter their circumstances. The first event will be held at Busboys and Poets at 5th & K Street, Washington DC on Thursday April 30, 10-2. A registration page will go up by mid-week – just wanted to let you know in advance. In the meantime, feel free to download my e-book, a collection of posts on Moms, Solo Practice and the 21st Century.
