Wed. April 18, 9:00 AM, Pacific, Sue Talia will be doing an online webinar (registration link). It is free.
Anyone can sign up to participate live. It will also be posted for free on the PLI website for a year. The substantive focus will be family law, but the third hour will be an overview of developments nationally and a discussion of various states’ approaches.
Here is the program description:
EXPANDING YOUR PRACTICE USING LIMITED SCOPE REPRESENTATION 2012
April 18, 2012
9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (Pacific Time)
Why You Should Attend
This program will provide an introduction to the rapidly changing practice of limited scope representation (often called “unbundling”) in a family law context, including all of the fee agreements, forms and other materials you will need to practice limited scope representation competently, safely and profitably.
What You Will Learn
- The ethical rules governing limited scope representation
- How to limit risk, including malpractice and insurance coverage issues
- How to identify the cases which lend themselves to limited scope representation
- How to reach a currently untapped pool of paying clients
- How to market your limited scope practice
- How to use limited scope to expand pro bono recruitment, lawyer for a day programs, and stretch legal services budgets farther
Note: Although the program is broken into one-hour segments for convenience, it is strongly recommended that you take each segment in sequence and not skip ahead, as they build on each other.
Who Should Attend
Solo and small firm family lawyers who serve middle class and moderate income clients, any family lawyer who wants to expand their client and referral base, and pro bono recruiters and legal services providers who want to learn how to help more clients with limited funding would benefit from attending this program.
Sue is, of course, a real leader in this area, and this is a great opportunity. I will update when the online version is posted.
