Dear Division Member:
Below is the second issue of Law Trends for the 2009–10 bar year. As always, the editors believe this is a very exciting issue, and I am very happy to present it to you. As with prior issues, this enewsletter includes articles, checklists, and other valuable practice information and practical tips, from our substantive practice and other areas in the General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Division. This issue continues to include articles dealing with practice management and issues affecting each solo and small firm attorney in these troubled times. It presents several articles dealing with managing your time in the practice of law.
In this issue, the editors have continued to present articles that are of interest to lawyers with solo and small-firm lifestyles who are managing their practices. We are very pleased to present this information in Law Trends, and we will be publishing articles quarterly. The articles give many tips and other ideas on how to manage your practice, get new clients, and budget your time.
We hope you agree that with each issue, Law Trends continues to provide meaningful articles for each of you. We trust that this issue, like the others, will be helpful to you in your daily practice. I encourage you to take just a few moments to read the list of articles below. Of course, the issue is yours to download and keep as a reference for the future. And, as in the past, you can either download specific articles, or you may download the entire newsletter by clicking the PDF link.
There are many Division members integrally involved in putting this enewsletter together. Their hard work and dedication are certainly present. I thank them for producing this issue for the Division.
I hope each of you enjoys this issue of Law Trends. The publication will continue quarterly, and we hope you continue to find it a source of valuable information. If you are interested in either writing an article or participating in the production of the newsletter, please contact Jim Schwartz at firstname.lastname@example.org. I thank him for his work and dedication.
