Course Description

This program was recorded on April 21, 2020

This course is for everyone who has ever dreamed of being a lawyer and possesses the passion to represent those who cannot speak for themselves. It is especially intended to offer a path to aspiring lawyers who sacrificed so much and worked so hard to attend and then graduate from law school, passing the Bar only to find no viable opportunity to practice law. It is my sincere hope that no other law school graduates will ever be faced with the prospect of abandoning their destiny simply because of not having a job offer or accepting a position that they hate because they have no other choice. I hope that this course creates more opportunities for passionate lawyers to start their own law firms, resulting in greater access to legal representation to those members of our community in need.
