OCI 9/20 – Info Interviews on Solo Practice

Think you might want to own your own firm someday?  Did you know that up to 65% of attorneys are in solo and small firms?

The practice of law is changing rapidly.  Better technology has enabled smaller firms to compete for more sophisticated work.  There is  huge untapped potential for serving middle income clients who are largely priced out of the market for legal services.  In addition to these trends, the flexibility and profitability of independent practice is becoming increasingly attractive to modern lawyers.

If you are intrigued by the idea of having your own firm one day, don’t miss this on-campus opportunity to meet one-on-one with Jay Kamlet, founder of LawBank, an innovative co-working space for independent lawyers with two Denver locations.  Mr. Kamlet will answer your questions about what it takes to run a successful small firm.  He will also be happy to share information about Denver Law’s Solo Practice Grant Program, through which we subsidize one year’s rent in LawBank for qualifying new JD graduates who open solo practices within LawBank.

Please “apply” via Symplicity using the job number 15535.  While these are informational interviews, please submit your resume through the Symplicity posting so Mr. Kamlet will have it for reference. We will then get back to you about scheduling a time to meet with Mr. Kamlet.  If you have any questions, please contact Eric Bono ebono@law.du.edu or Felicia Ho fho@law.du.edu
