Practising Law Institute
February 27, 2017
San Francisco or via Webcast

Why You Should Attend
Incubators train and support new lawyers to set up practices that charge affordable rates to otherwise underserved clients. This boot camp will benefit all lawyers that want to create sustainable practices serving clients of modest means. You will learn how to set up your firm, practice ethically, and handle firm finances.

What You Will Learn

  • Forming the practice entity
  • Designing a sustainable practice
  • Basics of malpractice insurance
  • Ethical considerations when starting a practice
  • Mechanics of practice
  • Finance issues

Who Should Attend
Law students, new graduates, attorneys participating in incubator programs, and attorneys or students interested in developing a solo practice. This program is specifically tailored to benefit individuals serving a modest means population but the program information will greatly benefit all attorneys and law students from attending.  


Texas A&M School of Law will be hosting this conference designed for people who are already involved in incubator or other post graduate programs for solo, small firm, and non-profit practitioners, as well as for those who want to know more about how these programs work and how they contribute to enhancing social justice through improved access to law.

The conference will describe and advance the continued growth of post- graduate law programs and the new wave of affordable legal services for groups without access to legal resources. Along with the basics of creating and implementing incubator programs and non-profit law firms, the conference will address, among other topics, the impact on law school curricular reform; collaboration between bench, bar and academics; technology and delivery of legal services; evolution of lawyering role models; and access to justice for low and moderate means clients.

The conference will include speakers, panels, workshops and hands-on technology sessions to help participants develop concrete take-aways that will have immediate impact on their work.
