Increasingly lawyers are “going solo” whether in private practice, as corporate counsel or in other alternative positions. There are great rewards in doing so – you get to be your own boss, take control of your daily schedule and reap the profits as well. But going solo also presents specific challenges, can be isolating, lonely and can take a toll on your mental health. In this session, you will gain strategies for building a support network and creating meaningful connections to help you be a happier solo practitioner.
