MFAN at MWL Solo SmallOn May 2, 2014, MFAN member Emerald Gratz participated as part of a panel presentation on practice management for the Minnesota Women Lawyers Solo/Small Firm affinity group monthly meeting. Other panelists included a virtual assistant, a representative from MoreLaw Minneapolis, two career service representatives from local law schools to discuss hiring law clerks, and two MWL Solo/Small Firm affinity group members.

The 90-minute panel presentation was well-received by members of the MWL Solo/Small Firm affinity group, including a wide variety of questions to panelists as well as a willingness to share personal experiences. MFAN thanks MWL Solo/Small Firm affinity group leader Mary Szondy for the invitation to join the panel!
