Another Great Philadelphia CLE Program for Lawyers in Transition - May 13

Here is yet another great Philadelphia-area CLE program that Gina Rubel will be participating in on May 13 targeting Lawyers in Transition. The program will take place at The CLE Conference Center on the 10th floor of the Wanamaker Building in Philadelphia - see more info on the event below.

The current economic slowdown has hit the legal profession hard. Attorneys have been laid off and firms have closed their doors. In an effort to assist attorneys who have been affected by the recession, the Law Practice Management Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) will present "Lawyers in Transition," a 2.5-credit CLE program designed to help struggling attorneys get back on their feet on Wednesday, May 13.

Job seekers will get advice about what steps to take to find a new position. Attorneys interested in forming their own practice will learn how to do so, how to market themselves and ethical considerations. This program will also provide an opportunity to network with other attorneys with whom you may want to practice or who are facing similar situations.

In furtherance of PBI's goal of assisting attorneys who find themselves in transition and are looking for work during these difficult times, PBI is offering this program at a substantially reduced fee. In addition to the reduced fee, those who cannot afford to pay for the seminar may attend at no cost. PBI will not require verification for this opportunity; you simply need to check the box appropriate to you when registering.

Panelists for this program include Daniel J. Siegel, president, Law Offices of Daniel J. Siegel, LLC and Mary F. Platt, Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoads, LLP (course planners); Ellen Freedman, Law Practice Management Coordinator, Pennsylvania Bar Association; Kenneth J. Hagreen, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers of Pennsylvania, Inc.; James LaRosa, JuriStaff, Inc.; and Gina F. Rubel, president, Furia Rubel Communications, Inc.

The program begins with "Suddenly Solo," a session discussing issues relating to how to set up your own law practice or to handle client matters while seeking new opportunities. Following a short break, "Looking for a Job" will examine using placement services, interviewing techniques, resumes, networking and dealing with stress. The program closes with "Marketing Yourself," with a discussion on getting clients, working with existing clients, ethical aspects of communicating with former clients. The program begins at 1 p.m. at The CLE Conference Center on the 10th floor of the Wanamaker Building, 13th and Market Streets. Because of the CLE rules, a portion of each of these sessions are not creditable. Credit will be provided for 30 minutes of ethics during each session. Click here to register for this event.
