Solo-small firm conference is a hit

Earlier this week I was fortunate enough to be able to spend two days in Duluth, covering the third annual "Strategic Solutions for Solo & Small firms" conference at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center. (Look for articles regarding the event in upcoming issues of Minnesota Lawyer.)

The family-friendly event, sponsored by Minnesota CLE, seems to get bigger and better every year. Everyone I talked to said they really enjoyed the conference, with some viewing it as almost a "mini-vacation."

In addition to earning a nice chunk of CLE credits, the solo and small firm lawyers -- many with their families in tow -- were treated to a picnic at Bayfront Park, a tour of the Great Lakes Aquarium, a harbor cruise and several nice meals. (For those nonmeat-eating individuals like myself, meals even included vegetarian options.) Moreover, the educational seminars offered at the conference were top-notch, with a varied selection of topics of interest to solo and small firm practitioners. When most attendees stay right up until the end of a 2 1/2 day conference, you know you've got a hit on your hands.

Good food, good company and good education. If you are a small firm or a solo practitioner in Minnesota, this is an event you don't want to miss!
