NEW YORK, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Lawline.com and Solo Practice University(TM) have launched a partnership to create a one-stop online educational and professional networking community for small firms and solo practitioners. Through the partnership, attorneys and students enrolled in Solo Practice University will be able to access hundreds of Lawline.com's exclusive continuing legal education courses to further enhance their practice while fulfilling their state bar CLE requirements.

Solo Practice University(TM)  was formed with the vision of supporting attorneys with the dream of opening a solo practice by replacing the apprentice experience. Susan Cartier Liebel, founder of Solo Practice University, says the company accomplishes this through a single online destination where lawyers and law students learn the basics of running a solo practice, take classes, and get expert feedback from professionals in specialized fields while networking with like-minded entrepreneurs. Lawline.com is the leading provider of online continuing legal education (CLE). The company's core value is based on the notion that learning is a life-long journey. Through its online learning center attorneys can complete their CLE credits and simultaneously enhance their practice through a variety of video and audio based courses from experts across the profession.

"There is a common preconception that when law school is over, so is learning," says Lawline.com president David Schnurman. "However, what makes this partnership so engaging is that Lawline.com and Solo Practice are both founded upon the ideal that learning is a never-ending process."

Both companies are thrilled that the merger of Lawline.com and Solo Practice University's technological and educational resources will make the process of becoming a solo practitioner much more accessible to all attorneys who want to do it.
