How Do You Make It Work as a Sole Practitioner?

Article on CUNY Law’s program that encourages grads to start solo practices in their own communities where there’s a need for lawyers and many residents can’t afford legal services. Published in the Wall Street Journal.

CUNY Law created the first in the nation “business incubator” for alumni.  Unlike other incubator-business models, CUNY Law’s “Incubator for Justice” has a twin goal of helping lawyers learn how to run a business (their own law practice) while helping them become lawyers in low-income communities that often lack access to outstanding, low-cost legal representation.
