2006 Solo and Small Firm Institute Expands to Two-Day Event


For the first time in its three-year history, the popular Solo and Small Firm Institute expands to a two-day seminar. This year’s event, presented by the Institute of Continuing Legal Education (ICLE), the State Bar of Michigan, and the SBM Business Law, General Practice, and Law Practice Management sections, will take place at the Dearborn Ford Conference and Event Center Oct. 19-20.

Highly rated by past attendees, this practical and energizing seminar offers substantive law updates, marketing strategy, technology training, dedicated support staff training, and more. Participants tailor the program to meet their specific needs by focusing on one of four tracks—Law Practice Management, Legal Assistant and Administrative Support, Substantive Law, and Technology.

Nationally known experts appearing at the seminar include:

  • Larry Rice of Rice Ammundsen and Capterton LLPC in Memphis, Tenn., the highest-rated presenter from last year's event, returns with all-new sessions offering insight on making law practices more fulfilling and profitable.
  • Dustin A. Cole of Attorneys Master Class in Longwood, Fla., shares practical advice on marketing and practice management.
  • Technology guru Barron K. Henley of Henley March and Unger Consulting, Inc., in Columbus, Ohio, is back for his third year. The featured presenter in the Technology Track, Henley's seminars over the two days include great topics like "Legal Technology Tips and Tricks" and "Going Mobile."

Adding to the value of the Institute is a major ICLE book sale and an exhibitors hall with vendors catering to the specific needs of solo and small firm practitioners.

"If you're in a solo or small firm practice, you really should consider this program," said Shel Stark, ICLE director of education. "We get great feedback on our evaluations like, 'Wish I was two people so I could attend two sessions at once,' and 'Consistently the best seminar ICLE offers.'"
