What They Don't Teach You in Law School: The Business Side of Law Practice
FOR ALL LAW STUDENTS
WHO BELONG TO OR JOIN THE
ALLEGHENY COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION (ACBA)
THE BUSINESS SIDE OF THE LAW PRACTICE
Who teaches young attorneys about the practice of law as a business? How do associates fit into the profitability mix? How does a young lawyer go about building a book of business? How do managing partners groom the next set of leaders? While law schools are great at teaching the core competencies needed to practice law, young lawyers also need guidance in learning about the business side of the law practice. Once again, the Pittsburgh Legal Administrators Association (PLAA) is teaming up with the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) to present their extremely well received and lively panel discussion on these important topics on Monday, November 7th from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., in the ACBA Auditorium, City County Building, 9th floor.
The panel will include Gary Hunt, Former Managing Shareholder of Tucker Arensberg, PC and Immediate Past President of ACBA, Kathleen Sullivan of Thorp Reed & Armstrong; Mary Jo Benedetti, CPA, CLM of Tucker Arensberg, PC; Erin N. May of Goehring Rutter & Boehm on marketing; with Penny Lotz of Goehring Rutter & Boehm as Moderator.
Attendance is free to all YLD members (including Pitt Law students who belong to the ACBA) and free lunch will be provided.
