Incubator/Residency Programs

Law firm incubator and residency programs are emerging as models that enable newly-admitted lawyers to acquire the range of skills necessary to launch successful practices. The alpha incubator was established at the City University of New York over a decade ago. Recent changes in the economy have led to the creation of similar models by both law schools and bar associations. This site provides a directory of current and planned incubators and residencies, profiles of the programs and information about the latest developments. If you have information to share, or if you'd like to join our Incubator Listserv for those involved in the development or administration of an incubator or similar program, email
