With the new bar year upon us, it is time for some R & R. How, you may be thinking, can we rest and relax at the beginning of a new year, especially in these trying economic times? I couldn’t agree more. The R & R the ABA Law Practice Management Section needs is reflection and renewal, not rest and relaxation. Over the years, LPM has been at the forefront in helping lawyers develop the business side of their practices through the four core areas of marketing, management, technology and finance. This year, the Section will continue to renew itself by addressing cutting-edge issues facing the profession and providing forward-thinking programming and information in these core areas. I hope you take the time to reflect and renew your practice with the many tools LPM has created to assist you in your professional journey.

>> CLE

To meet the growing demand for practice management resources, LPM hosted two new CLE series featuring some of our most knowledgeable members and authors: Using Technology in the Courtroom and LPM’s Author-Expert CLE Series. If you missed any of the sessions to the right, don’t worry, you can still hear the sessions and receive CLE with:

CLE on the Go!

>> Meetings

LPM meets several times a year, and if you’ve never attended one of our meetings, then you’re missing out and not making the most of your membership. LPM has a very dedicated group of members who attend our meetings, but we’re always looking for more volunteers with new perspectives and ideas.

For our the upcoming LPM Fall Meeting, registration is free for LPM members so don’t wait ... join us in Washington, DC and become a better lawyer with your LPM membership.
