Open for business or thinking of hanging your own shingle? The Nassau Academy of Law's special monthly lecture series, the Business of Law, is designed to help small and solo practitioners run a more successful law practice. This innovative series of monthly Dean's Hours will each offer one CLE credit in professional practice or skills, and will cover such topics as client selection, paperless offices, and understanding financial statements for attorneys and their law practice.
The series is the brainchild of Thomas J. Foley, a personal injury attorney in Garden City and the Associate Dean for the Nassau Academy of Law, the educational arm of the Nassau County Bar Association and Gary Port, a matrimonial attorney in Lynbrook and past Chair of the Nassau County Bar Association’s General/Solo/Small Firm Practice Committee. The monthly discussions focus on the challenges small and solo practitioners face in setting up and running their own law firms. Past discussions have focused on target marketing, networking, client selection, and business plans for attorneys and their law practice.
The next programs in the series are scheduled for October 26 and November 30. On October 26, the presentation will focus on paperless offices. The guest speaker will be Christopher J. DelliCarpini, a Garden City attorney in private practice. On November 30, Frederick J. Esposito, Jr., Executive Director of Rivkin Radler LLP in Uniondale will discuss balance sheets and financial statements and their importance for attorneys and their law practice.
The sign-in for all programs is 12:30 p.m., and the seminar is 1 - 2 p.m. Optional lunch is available for purchase through NCBA's dining service.
Reservations are $30 for Nassau County Bar Association members for each seminar, and all seminars are free for the Bar’s Domus Scholar Circle members.
