New Attorney Solo Practice Incubator Program

          

Loyola Law School is proud to announce its membership in the Los Angeles Incubator Consortium (LAIC). Through LAIC, selected new attorneys participate in a one-year program designed to provide them with the infrastructure to start solo law practices that serve modest means individuals.  Starting November (after Bar Results) through December 2016, recent graduates interested in starting their own solo practice can apply to participate in LAIC. 

LAIC is a partnership among Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, Pepperdine University School of Law, Southwestern Law School, UCLA School of Law, local legal aid organizations (Bet Tzedek, Community Legal Services, Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, Neighborhood Legal Services, and Public Counsel) and the Los Angeles County Law Library.  It is the goal of LAIC to promote greater access to legal services for all.

After a competitive application process that includes the submission of a personal statement and business plan, a personal interview, and a commitment to provide 100 pro bono hours to clients of local legal aid organizations, Loyola will chose three recent graduates to participate in LAIC.  With the support of the LAIC attorney development director and the consortium partners, the new attorney participants will be provided with reduced-cost shared office space, training geared towards solo-practice management as well as various substantive areas of law, and attorney mentorship.  Training is provided by consortium members and in exchange for pro bono hours, these organizations will offer legal training and assist the new solos in building and maintaining relationships in the community.

If you are a Class of 2016 graduate who is interested in the LAIC application process, contact the Career Development Center at (213) 736-1150 or your career development counselor.
