Do NOT miss the first ever Solo and Small Firm Expo next week at Pitt Law, on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 from 6 to 8 pm in the lobby.

Did you know that the majority of law school graduates (including here at Pitt Law) will find their first job in a private law firm, and the vast majority of those graduates will work at law firms of 1 – 10 attorneys?

In recognition of this data, and Pitt Law student requests for programming about solo and small firm practice in Pittsburgh, Pitt Law's Professional Development Office (PDO) organized the first ever Solo and Small Firm Expo at Pitt Law.
