Most attorneys would like to be inspired by their work or find out how to widen their practice areas. Fortunately, in this program, community development attorney Michael Levine teaches lawyers how to do both by becoming involved in the community development field. Specifically, Mr. Levine explains exactly what community development is, and shows attorneys how to generate clients and billable work in this practice area. Additionally, he discusses the types of skills and knowledge that attorneys already have which can transfer over to community development work. Finally, through examples of his own experiences, he explains how practitioners can successfully assist clients in these projects. This course is especially helpful for transactional and real estate attorneys looking to generate more business, or any attorney hoping to give back to their community by offering pro bono services.
