    Starting a law practice is exciting, demanding, and rewarding. MCLE’s Hanging Your Shingle series is an unparalleled opportunity to learn how to avoid pitfalls and take charge of your career. This concentrated and thorough program offers a conversational environment that offers a unique chance to learn how to run your own law practice.

They give you the knowledge you need to avoid the pitfalls of each option. The program gives you the information you need to determine which option will make you a successful lawyer-entrepreneur, practicing in the place most practical for you!
