SoloCorps Website Shares Solo Practitioner's Stories on Video
You probably assume that after retiring as one of the lead authors of Legal Blog Watch, Carolyn Elefant is now relaxing on a beach in the Mediterranean, lighting cigars with $100 bills and otherwise living the dream life that rightfully belongs to all former LBW writers. And while that may well be the case, it turns out that, in addition, Carolyn has recently launched a very interesting project called SoloCorps.
As discussed here by The Common Scold, Carolyn has collaborated with Lisa Solomon to create the SoloCorps website, which already has 50 videos that chronicle "the stories, experiences, and wisdom of solo and small firm lawyers." More videos are on the way, and the site hopes attorneys will submit their own videos as well.
On her MyShingle blog, Carolyn wrote that while
the legal profession is in a state of upheaval ... the solo experience endures and inspires. We want to capture the rich range of experiences of solos and small firm lawyers across the country. By telling your stories, you’ll be sharing your wisdom with today’s lawyers, as well as with the next generation.
The site has videos on many different topics, such as "From Law Enforcement to Lawyer." The video below is taken from the site's section on "Going Solo After BigLaw" and features solo attorney Phil Belin of Omaha, Neb.
