To be eligible for the DirectLaw New Lawyer Program, a "New Lawyer" is a lawyer who has passed the bar and is in his or her first year of practice as a solo practitioner.
Solo Practice University ® is an excellent online training resource for both new and experienced lawyers. Solo Practice University® offers online courses on virtual law practice, marketing your law firm online, legal blogging, marketng for lawyers, client relations, how to hang your shingle right out of law school, and unbundling legal services, to name only a few courses. Richard Granat teaches a course in "unbundling" legal services online.
DirectLaw ® makes this opportunity available to new lawyers to enhance their capacity to be successful as a start-up solo practitioner. Law schools do not prepare law students to create and manage a law practice. By and large, law schools educate their students with skills that are required for being either a Supreme Court clerk, a law professor, or for service in a large law firm. Some law schools offer a course in law practice management, but this is not sufficient to prepare a law student to open their own law practice.
Operating a virtual law practice can be a challenge for a new law school graduate with no legal specialty, no real referral network, and no real experience practicing law. Despite these challanges, new lawyers are making it as a solo practitioner if they make the commitment to acquire the law practice management skills that are necessary.
