    The semi-annual seminar features presentations on how to maintain mutually beneficial client relationships, draft effective fee agreements, manage lawyer trust accounts, analyze ethical issues, and use innovative techniques, resources and technology for law office management. The seminar presents an excellent opportunity for solo practitioners and new lawyers to obtain practical information from colleagues who have effectively implemented law office management techniques and utilized economically-priced technology to improve the quality and efficiency of their law practices.

    Registration costs $100 for lawyers who have been in practice for less than five years, and $125 for those who have practiced law for five years or more. The registration fee includes seminar materials, a continental breakfast and buffet lunch. You must register and make your payment prior to Friday, May 1.
