Message from the Founder

Susan Cartier LiebelSolo Practice University® was created to both replace the apprentice experience if you haven’t had one and to complement the apprentice experience if you do – without sucking up years of your life. It’s a single online destination where lawyers and law students learn the basics of running a solo practice, take classes and get expert feedback from lawyers and business professionals in specialized fields.

Solo Practice University® combines all the benefits of an educational community, legal blog, a professional network, and a legal conference. You’ll find teachers who are well-known and highly regarded in their fields teaching through video, podcast and other media to bring the experience of the classroom home to your computer.

Ultimately, Solo Practice University® has just one goal: to help you open your own solo practice. We’ll keep making this community stronger, better, and easier to use until we get you there.
