If spending time with innovative solo lawyers with more ideas than you could hope to implement in a year is your idea of fun (it is mine!), you would have loved TBD Law.
TBD Law was a two-day conference in St. Louis that took place a couple of weeks ago, and I am still reeling from the energy and enthusiasm it inspired. Lawyers who code, lawyers who build tools for other lawyers, lawyers who practice low bono and have grand ideas of whole buildings dedicated to low bono + incubator + transitioning to retirement + think tank, and lawyers with more creativity than you’ll find in any BigLaw firm came together to share their ideas, from the fantastical to the nuts and bolts. We all came away with a new set of tools, new ideas, and new colleagues. I’ve described it as the two most valuable days of my professional life as a solo, and that is no overstatement.
