Whether it is growing your client base, launching your transition into an in-house practice, developing new and evolved business development skills, acquiring expertise in a new practice area, picking up new courtroom or transactional skills, growing as a leader of teams in your practice venue, or the infi nite other options for your development as a lawyer, this program will demystify how to build a plan for your development and success. Participants will learn how to use a template IDP tool, as well as how to seek out the right education, experiences, relationships, and feedback to support their IDP and the resulting development. Participants will leave with an IDP tool for their use, a supporting 90-day development tool, and a list of resources focused on the legal industry that they can use as they continue their development journey.
