The Law Practice Management Section of the D.C. Bar assists members in managing law practices more efficiently and profitably. It focuses on such topics as the effective use of computers in the practice of law, financial management, billing, practice development, personnel issues, and legal ethics.
The section sponsors a variety of brown bag and evening programs for both large firm managers and smaller firm practitioners designed to improve practice management, knowledge, and skills. The section organizes and produces numerous education programs, networking opportunities, outreach to area law schools and legal service providers, and a newsletter. Programs are open to all, but discounts on admission are available to section members.
The section also has three committees: Medium and Large Firm Practice, Solo and Small Firm Practice, and Technology.
The Solo and Small Firm Practice Committee won an award for the best section committee for its brown bag seminar series. In addition, it serves as a resource to the D.C. Bar and the courts on concerns of solo and small firm practitioners.
The steering committee meets once a month, on the first Thursday of each month at 8 a.m. These meetings are open and anyone is welcome to attend.
