The only constant in the legal profession has been change: change in everything from firm business and compensation models to client relationships and billing practices, not to mention the ever accelerating pace of technological change.

Law schools often do an effective job of preparing lawyers for the practice of law, but they do not always provide their students and young alumni with the practical marketing, business, and other skills necessary for a fulfilling and successful legal career. The need for experienced lawyers to provide advice and mentoring to law students and young lawyers is critical to their success.

We invite you to join Curtis Romig (C'94), Partner at Bryan Cave, as he offers the benefit of his two decades of experience in the legal profession, including what he wished he had known about the practice and business of law while he was in law school and when he was a younger lawyer. His perspective includes:

-Having been in private practice before, during, and after the dot.com boom and the Great Recession
-Serving as his firm’s Atlanta hiring partner for three years
-Being involved in the recruiting, training and mentoring of young lawyers
-Assisting his firm with risk management issues.

Curtis has seen the legal profession in good times and bad, and has seen his original firm go through two significant combinations with other law firms.
