Lawyer Incubators

2016 Comprehensive Survey of Lawyer Incubators

The Delivery Committee, in collaboration with the Incubator Consortium, has conducted a survey of lawyer incubators. Its purpose is to give existing programs insights about where they fit in the national picture and ideas about how they can further develop their programs, as well as facilitate the creation of new programs. The resulting report provides a summary of the majority of the lawyer incubators in the world. It contains information on: (1) program characteristics; (2) resources and training; (3) client and community services; and (4) the future outlook.

Lawyer incubators 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.
