Here’s an excellent post by Ron Fox at the Lawyer Satisfaction Blog about how poorly law schools prepare their students to actually practice law and run a law office and something called "Solo Practice University.

Nothing in law school prepares one for the responsibility of running the business of a law practice.  Law schools traditionally have trained students to be judges’ law clerks and junior associates in big firms, ignoring the reality that many will within a few years have their own practice.

In the State Bar of Georgia, we have a Transition to Practice Program that provides seasoned mentors for new lawyers in their first year of practice and a Law Practice Management Program to provide resources and training on practical realities of managing a law office.  Both are good programs that we should continue to cultivate and advance.
