PDO has begun putting together the first few events which we are calling “Solo Support Series”—speakers and panels intended to help those who will start their own solo or small firm practice. These events will take place at the College of Law, and will offer you more perspectives and chances to meet small firm/solo practitioners, building on the wonderful help offered by Kyle Hoskins in his annual workshops.
Please mark your calendars for the following dates. Food will be served at each event. Please RSVP for the first one, on August 13, by emailing Anneliese at Anneliese.Booher@law.utah.edu.
