General Practice and General Programs of Interest

General Practice Section and General Practice Programs of Interest

The General Practice Section seeks to provide information that helps general practice and solo/small firm attorneys in the daily practice of law.

One of our primary goals is to enhance the competence and skills of lawyers engaged in the general practice of law, to improve their ability to deliver the most efficient and highest quality legal services to their clients and to provide a forum through which general practitioners may cooperate and assist each other in the resolution of the daily issues of practicing law.
