Legal Practice Lab

What is Legal Practice Lab?
The CBA's Legal Practice Lab is a 6-week program designed to provide lawyers with the practical information and skills they need to establish and build a thriving law practice. This series goes beyond simply drawing conclusions about what makes a successful law practice; participants will walk through the "how to" of the business side of your law practice.
