Learn How to Build a Solo Law Practice

Lawyers around the world rejoiced today as Solo Practice University (SPU) announced its tuition. On March 20th, “the practice of law school” will open its doors to a flood of solo (and hopefully solo) practitioners. Are you enrolling?

What is Solo Practice University?

In a nutshell, it’s an online university where law students and lawyers can learn a wide variety of topics related to running a successful solo law practice. There are courses, faculty, discussion groups, blogs, videos, comments, and lots more!

You might think of SPU like an educational Facebook for solo lawyers (and law students). It’s a combination of a blog community, social network, and online university.

What will be taught?

Lots of things! Here is the current course offering, and I’m sure it will continue to expand.
