    Aug. 5, 2020 – The 2020 Wisconsin Solo & Small Firm Conference (WSSFC) is coming to your computer Oct. 28-30.

    WSSFC will be a virtual conference – and will have all the events that make the conference a great one for Wisconsin’s solo and small-firm lawyers.

    Attendees will be able to attend CLE and plenary sessions, browse and meet with exhibitors in the vendor hall, network with colleagues, have a private conversation with a speaker, and enter for a chance to win prizes – all while social distancing at work or home.

    Plus, you’ll save on the expense of a hotel and travel and meals away from home.

    Attend the Conference – At Home or Office

    This conference “is my favorite conference and the most important conference each year for solo and small-firm attorneys,” says State Bar President Kathy Brost, who has been involved with organizing the conference for going on 10 years. “While it is virtual this year, this conference is full of practical tips and techniques that will help you both practice law successfully in the age of COVID 19 and enjoy life.”

    The schedule continues its tradition of four separate CLE tracks: Substantive Law, Practice Management, Technology, and Quality of Life/Ethics.

    The conference will be the debut of the State Bar Professional Development Department’s new and extremely versatile virtual platform.

    “We’re lifting the curtain on a new model of learning. We’ve been experimenting with this new technology,” says Theresa Elliott, Director of the State Bar of Wisconsin Professional Development Department. “This conference is a great opportunity to premiere it.”

    At the Virtual Conference

    While details will be announced at a later time, Elliott says that attendees can easily engage with speakers and colleagues throughout the conference.

    You can browse the vendor hall and grab information from the vendors to put in your personal virtual "brief case." You will also be able to share business cards and other information with colleagues. The electronic brief case will be available after the conference.

    But what about that great vendor swag characteristic of the Solo & Small Firm Conference? “No worries, our team is working on different and creative ways to make sure our attendees get the takeaway gifts they are accustomed to finding at the conference,” Elliott said.
