CMBA Summer School - Practice & Business Development Clinic

CMBA Summer School - Practice & Business Development Clinic
Every lawyer wants to hear new ideas for developing and growing their business. This unique, limited attendance program led by Stuart Teicher will not only give you the opportunity to hear new ideas on law firm business development, but it will provide you the opportunity to share your own gems of wisdom with your peers.

Special pricing for CMBA Small & Solo Section Members.


Summer school is in session!

Meet us at the Bar for an afternoon session, featuring CMBA CLE favorite, Stuart Teicher, focusing exclusively on business and practice development.  While you'll earn CLE credits, this is not your traditional CLE lecture!  This highly interactive program will deliver creative and concrete ideas for growing your practice!

Registration is limited to 50 participants to allow for small group participation and hands-on instruction.

Why Should You Attend?

Besides leading the workshop discussions, Stuart will bring his own law practice experience, as well as his entertaining teaching style, to bear on solutions to common and not-so-common dilemmas in law firm marketing, advertising and business development. Stuart will also provide concrete ideas that lawyers could implement in their own practice to improve their business, including: using social media and YouTube to grow your practice and developing a business plan that actually makes a difference. Plus, Stuart will provide powerful insights on the kinds of communications skills that lawyers need to connect with clients. After all, a strong attorney-client relationship based on solid communication is the best referral tool.
