The Jacksonville Lawyers Roundtable is an open forum for lawyers and legal professionals to talk about rainmaking and practice management. The Roundtable meets once monthly. The JLR was created April 2, 2004, by business coach Doug Wilder, who has a vision for building your business and practice through relationship building, and self-improvement.


What are "rainmaking"

and "practice management"?

Rainmaking is the fine art and science of acquiring clients or revenues. Practice management involves the methods of running a law firm, whether a solo practice, a small law firm, or a large firm.


Any and all lawyers are invited to the Jax Lawyers Roundtable. In addition, law students, in-house office administrators and practice managers, in-house law firm marketers, and paralegals are also invited.

Jacksonville Lawyers Roundtable meets every month on the first Friday (except holidays) of each month from 11:45 to 1:30. As this is an informal group and by the nature of the legal profession, some attendees must come late or leave early, and so there is a high tolerance for late arrivals or early departures.

There are no dues for the Jacksonville Lawyers Roundtable. The only cost is the cost of the meal a la carte, plus tip. You pay the restaurant directly.
