What is The Solution Room?
The Solution Room is an opportunity for solo and small firm attorneys to discuss professional challenges with fellow solo or small firm lawyers. A facilitated format keeps discussion lively, allowing every participant to both give and receive advice on real-world challenges.
- Receive advice and support from your peers on a professional problem or challenge you face in your practice—and give it in return.
- Build connections with a small group of fellow solo and small firm lawyers through sharing your group’s challenges and ideas.
- Discover the broad range of peer experience available to you, and learn how to tap it for your benefit.
This program is designed for attorneys with a wide range of experience, from those with at least six months’ experience in solo/small firm practice, to 20+ years.
Your presence matters! Late arrival or early departure will affect other participants' experience. Because this is an interactive, peer-based program, please plan to arrive promptly, and stay for the duration of the session.
