Our theme for the year is "You Are Not Alone". The goal is to help our members establish and grow their practices. We are hosting mixers, educational programs and webinars that give you opportunities to network and stay current on the law.
For the past two years, the Solo & Small Firm Section has been offering live MCLE programs through underserved bar associations – from Humboldt County down to Imperial County. We’ve reached east to San Joaquin County and Yuba City. In 2014, we’re expanding the number of programs throughout the state to support our fellow solo and small firm attorneys.
