Lunch and Learn

The Practice Management Advisory Service of the D.C. Bar presents the Small Firm Lunch and Learn Series. Each program in this series will explore a topic of particular interest to members who are starting, managing, or growing law firms in the District of Columbia. Most sessions take place from noon until 2:00 p.m. at the D.C. Bar (901 4th Street, NW) and are free to Bar members and their staff. This is a brown bag event. Attendees may bring their own lunch. Beverages are served.

In addition to registering online, you may also email [email protected] to register for all events.


Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the D.C. Bar has decided to take precautionary measures to protect our members, our staff, and the community we serve. Beginning March 16, key Bar services will only be available online via videoconference.
