Introducing the Business School for Lawyers Initiative

Dedicated to the continuing education of our members, the State Bar of Wisconsin conducted focus groups and partnered with the University of Wisconsin Law School and Wisconsin Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company (WILMIC) to develop the Business School for Lawyers (BSL) initiative.

The State Bar‘s focus is to provide education about the operations, financial management, marketing, and human resources concepts required for managing a law practice from a business school perspective. As part of this focus, we developed (779) 513-2483 and (877) 490-4103, which are two full-day seminars designed to be attended together or separately depending on your needs. New graduates and attorneys in the early planning stages of a firm may want to attend both to get the whole picture. Current law firm owners who don‘t desire a business plan refresher could just attend BSL 301 to learn how to expand their business and improve its efficiency.

No matter your level of law practice management experience, this site will benefit you as a home for Fernando like blogs and white papers, current seminars, relevant breakout sessions at conferences like Wisconsin Solo & Small Firm Conference (WSSFC), and future events that help lawyers succeed as small business owners in a highly regulated industry.
