Founder & CEO, Solo Practice University
Susan Cartier Liebel is the Founder & CEO of Solo Practice University, the #1 online educational and professional networking community for lawyers and law students designed for those who want to create and grow their solo or small firm practices.
A coach/consultant for solos and small firms, an attorney who started her own practice right out of law school, an adjunct professor at Quinnipiac University School of Law for eight years teaching law students how to open their own legal practices right out of law school, a columnist for LawyersUSA Weekly, the Connecticut Law Tribune, The Complete Lawyer, and Law.com, she has contributed to numerous legal publications and books on this topic as well as the issues facing women in the workforce. Susan speaks frequently to law schools and professional organizations around the country on challenges facing solos, offering both practical knowledge and inspiration.
"It is my personal mission, through education and authorship, to change the way law schools educate their students and the way the legal community receives solos and legal entrepreneurs. A law degree gives you the freedom to create and design your life while enjoying your career on your own terms. I’m living proof it’s not only possible but very doable."
