Lunch and Learn

The Practice Management Advisory Service of the D.C. Bar presents the Small Firm Lunch and Learn Series. Each program in this series will explore a topic of particular interest to members who are starting, managing, or growing law firms in the District of Columbia. Most sessions take place from noon until 2:00 p.m. at the D.C. Bar (901 4th Street, NW) and are free to Bar members and their staff. This is a brown bag event. Attendees may bring their own lunch. Beverages are served.

In addition to registering online, you may also email [email protected] to register for all events.


Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the D.C. Bar has decided to take precautionary measures to protect our members, our staff, and the community we serve. Beginning March 16, key Bar services will only be available online via videoconference.

October 8, 2020 - The Impact of Social Media Marketing on Your Firm’s Online Reputation

Sponsored by Thomson Reuters

Disruption brought about by COVID-19 has upended many a best-laid plan. In the space of about two weeks, most of the United States went from living life as normal to operating under an entirely new paradigm.
 What is abundantly clear is the greater shift to a solely digital world. Social distancing and government restrictions have had significant impacts. People are spending more time online. Web browsing is up. Virtual meetings are the norm. Social media use is increasing.

Join the webcast to:

  • Gain insights on how law firms are handling business development given the current climate
  • Learn digital strategies that will allow your firm to remain relevant and visible
  • Review ideas on how to reallocate your firm’s digital marketing approach

October 15, 2020 - Practice Perfect: Strategies for Growing Your Firm

Presented by Tim Bedford of Ruby Receptionists

While law firms can be as diverse as the lawyers who founded them, when it comes to size, location, specialty, and more, nearly all share a common goal — the desire for growth. So how can law practices ensure growth by increasing their revenues and expanding their client bases?

In this seminar, we’ll explore this question by examining:

  • The state of the legal industry
  • Expectations of today’s law clients
  • Three focus areas that deliver consistent growth
  • Tips for maximizing efficiency to increase revenue
  • Ways to increase conversions and expand your client base
  • How to retain existing clients and turn them into referrals
