ABA Launches Solo, Small-Firm Resource Center

By Norayr Zurabyan

The ABA Presidential Task Force on Solo and Small Firm Membership Development, at the direction of ABA President William (Bill) T. Robinson III, began working on the implementation of the Solo and Small Firm Online Resource Center in August 2011. The Online Resource Center is available for all lawyers free of charge. It provides a wide array of information helpful for small and solo firms.

Development of the Online Resource Center began because of the reality that many small and solo firms do not have access to the same resources as bigger firms. The Online Resource Center provides online articles, news, CLE programming, books, and other resources relating to topics that include marketing, practice management, insurance, technology, forms, and more. Moreover, it provides information about work-life balance, networking events, and discounted items and services.

The Online Resource Center is a tremendous asset to all lawyers, but especially those with solo and small-firm practices.
