Our team is excited to share that in 2017, Attorney Jim Morici will be volunteering in Chicago-Kent College of Law’s newest initiative, the Solo and Small Practice Incubator. The first workshop, which is planned for a date in February 2017, will provide educational and training opportunities for seven to eight new lawyers, all of whom are graduates of Chicago-Kent College of Law.
When asked about his approaching involvement, Attorney Morici stated, "Chicago-Kent has long been a pioneer in clinical education. The Incubator program is another example of Kent's groundbreaking leadership in yet another area of practical legal education. As a Chicago personal injury lawyer, I can attest to the fact that practical instruction is essential in making the transition from law school to practice. I am excited to help new lawyers make the transition."
About the Solo and Small Practice Incubator
This is a one-year program designed to offer a small number of recent, entrepreneurial-minded graduates from the university with continuous training and valuable experience needed to help these graduates build professional careers as solo or small firm legal practitioners. To do so, the program seeks to accelerate the successful development of newly admitted attorneys in an incubator-like environment.
Additionally, the Solo and Small Practice Incubator supports and encourages the graduates of the program by providing the following resources:
- Practical and skills training workshops
- Coaching in business and marketing development
- Mentoring support
- Networking opportunities
Although there are no fees to participate in this program, participants are required to spend five to 10 hours a week with their alumni mentor in their mentor’s small practice or solo firm or with their matched faculty.
