Solo and Small Practice Management Certificate
The new Solo and Small Practice Management Certificate at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law provides attorneys with the necessary business skills and knowledge to open and operate a legal practice. This program helps attorneys bridge the gap between lawyering and operating a solo or small legal practice. The 16 semester-credit hour certificate can be completed in one year and will cover all aspects of operating a law practice and a business, including but not limited to: client service and relationship management, trust accounts, accounting processes, marketing, law practice administration, business development, social media, and billing and fees.
The Solo and Small Practice Management Certificate is available to those currently holding a J.D. or foreign equivalent law degree. In order to complete the Certificate, students must complete a total of 16 credit hours, which are comprised of the following four classes (plus two electives). These classes are:
- Introduction to Small Practice Management
- Accounting for the Small Legal Practice
- Business Development for Solo Practitioners: Marketing and Client Service
- Legal Practice Seminar
