I Passed The Bar – Now What?

Are you in your first few years of practicing law? Need to find your place in the practice of law? Then the Law Practice Conference For New Lawyers is just for you! This unique CLE allows attendees to pick and choose from a variety of sessions. Come for all day or for just one or two hours. The morning topics are designed for new lawyers who are still searching for a job, plan to hang out their own shingle or work for small firms. Mid-day topics address a variety of issues applicable to all new lawyers and will be presented in rapid-fire succession. Finally, the afternoon topics will focus on issues affecting firm lawyers. It all gets started Nov. 10 at 9 a.m. at the Tennessee Bar Center in Nashville.
