GPS Tracker

Welcome to GPS Tracker, a General Practice Section publication of practical tips for general practitioners who are navigating the practice of law.

GPS Tracker Newsletter

We know that the State Bar is not one-size-fits-all. The typical day of an attorney in a large firm in New York City may be different from that of an upstate solo practitioner. The needs of an attorney in a small firm who handles a little bit of everything might be broader in scope than those of someone who specializes in one particular area of the law.

The General Practice Section is tailored to fit the needs of the general practitioner, which requires a broad knowledge base, both substantive and procedural, in the wide variety of areas encountered by general-practice attorneys every day. General practitioners are important to us: GPS Tracker seeks to address the issues that are important to you, in a quick-read format that will fit into your schedule.
