I don’t often make recommendations about conferences; there are so many to choose from and my readers’ tastes vary. Still, I’ve got to put in a good word for two different conferences. First, I attended my first ever NACBA (National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys) Conference last Friday, where I was invited to speak by my colleague, Jay Fleischman. The Conference offered a great mix of first rate skills along with a business and marketing track with lots of bankruptcy-specific practice tips. Jay and his colleague, Cathy Moran are also offering a bankruptcy workshop next week in Phoenix – I don’t know if there are still openings, but here’s the information.
For solos in the New York area, there’s a terrific event for solo and small firm lawyers that’s packed with information for both newbies as well as more experienced solo and small firm lawyers. Even better, you can’t find a better priced event even online – the program is a full day and includes lunch – and costs only $50 for non-New York City Bar members (half that for members). Even if you just attend to stand in the hallway and get to know other solos, it’s worth it for that price! The event is coming up soon, though – November 10, 2011 – to register, visit this link.
