1. On FEBRUARY 15, 2011, I’m returning to the American University, Washington College of Law School, to reprise my talk on the Nuts & Bolts of Starting a Law Firm – which covers the reasons to consider starting a firm out of law school, how to do it and also, how you can use a law firm start up as a way to find a job if that’s where your interest lies. The talk, which is free and open to all, is Tuesday, February 15; 12:00-1:20 pm; Room 101 at the law school, 4801 Mass Ave, Wash DC. Stop by if you can!

On FEBRUARY 16, 2011, Jay Fleischman will be presenting a FREE 90-minute webinar on Why Content Matters, which will discuss topics such as the role of content in search engine rankings and creating a content hub and content promotion strategies.
