Ideas for a Lawyer Unconference

Grant Griffiths over at Home Office Lawyer is working on an awesome idea: an unconference for lawyers (definition of “unconference”). He is soliciting ideas to help get the ball rolling, especially regarding speakers to have, how much people would be willing to pay, and if people would come even if it does not count as CLE. So head on over to Grant’s blog and give him your feedback; the whole legal community will appreciate it.

Here’s my two cents on this idea: it sounds awesome. I’m still a lowly law student, but I am interested in the prospect of someday have a home-based practice. It would be incredible to allow people such as myself to attend the unconference to learn about this different method of practicing law. Perhaps the unevent could help to foster learning about the career-style and bring the idea of home-practice to more lawyers and law students.

The big problem I see with law students coming, though, is the cost of getting there and paying to help cover unconference costs. Perhaps students could have a slightly cut rate to help make it more possible to attend.

What do you think about the unconference for lawyers idea? Normally I solicit comments here, but I really want to help Grant out, so please head over to his post and provide your feedback. If you want to contact me directly, feel free to comment here or drop me a line.

    That sounds awesome. I wish I would be able to attend. Who knows, maybe I will be able to.

    Andrew, I’m working with Grant on this project. Make a wish list of topics you’d like to see covered and post it — especially from a future solo’s perspective.

    First of all, I love your blog! I am flattered to be asked for ideas for this awesome project you guys are doing. I have put together a post that contains my thoughts here:

    Hopefully my thoughts make sense. I would love to help with this project, if I can. I’m not sure what you guys need, but definitely count me in.

    Take care,
