JDB 167: Lawyernomics by Avvo – Day One

I am back in Las Vegas, Nevada for Avvo’s 8th annual Lawyernomics conference. Lawyermonics is a three day conference focused on helping lawyers with the business side of law practice.

Last year was my first year attending Lawyernomics and I really enjoyed the conference. After the conference each day I came back to my hotel room and recorded a recap episode of what I learned that day and some of the insights shared by the speakers. This year Avvo has allowed the JDBlogger Podcast additional access to the various speakers and I will be bringing you interviews with some of the conference speakers in addition to a recap episode each night.
