I’ve been attending various bar association solo and small firm conferences for awhile. Most, if not all of them, have high-tech nuggets of information any lawyer will gladly soak up. Oklahoma’s Solo & Small Firm Conference is no different. The problem is, at least for some, is that Oklahoma’s conference is in Oklahoma.
Trust me though, it’s not that bad. And if the weather keeps up like it has been, we’ll have a pleasant time to golf and soak up the sun.
More importantly though, Oklahoma’s 2015 Solo & Small Firm Conference is addressing the hot topic of legal practice management. This year, vendors like Clio, MyCase, Rocket Matter, and Firm Manager (LexisNexis), will be present to show off their practice management solutions in a “shoot out” style display.
Of course, there are other featured session, such as a DUI “lab” and a discussion on estate planning for same-sex couples. Finally, the one and only, Ben Schorr will bring his knowledge of all things Microsoft, including Office 365.
And since I’m the token Google/Android guy, I’ll be there, too. (But I don’t even get a mention in the adverts.)
You can check out the full schedule, make your reservations — use OBAJUNE182015 — at the Hard Rock Hotel Tulsa, and grab a seat in the conference crowd. The conference runs June 19 & 20, but early bird registration is June 4. I should also mention that the registration fee is $200 for an attorney or $350 for a family (early bird), which includes several meals. The conference is approved for Oklahoma and Texas CLE credits, and I’m sure if you called the Oklahoma Bar Association (405-416-7000) and told them to apply for your state, they would. (If they tell you no, just let me know and I’ll “urge” them to make it happen.)
Hurry and register, so you can keep me company. And if you’re coming in from out-of-state (or you’re in-state) and you mention that you read my blog, I’ll give you an extra free drink ticket, which will subsequently depend on how many tickets I have.
