Adjunct Professor Neil Pedersen presented his annual “Hit the Floor Running” at Western State on January 12. Part of a CLE program organized by Pam Davidson, Professor Pedersen’s program provided guidance for young attorneys on topics such as problem identification and problem solving, the written and spoken word, time management, professional conduct and ethics, and business development. Professor Pedersen also presented Surviving and Thriving in the Practice of Law at the Orange County Bar Association’s Last Dash MCLE event, held at Chapman Law School the same day. Much of the content from both presentations came from the curriculum of Professor Pedersen’s Law Practice Management and Technology course co-taught with Adjunct Professor Carolyn Dillinger.
Adjunct Professor Neil Pedersen participated in a seminar entitled “Mock Depositions: Don’t Make a Mockery of Yourself,” on September 12. At this Orange County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division program, Professor Pedersen conducted a demonstration deposition and then participated in a panel discussing deposition fundamentals.
Professor Pedersen also was one of four speakers at the Orange County Bar Association Solo and Small Firm Section’s annual program, held September 14, entitled “Building and Growing a Successful Practice.” Professor Pedersen spoke about all aspects of law practice management and technology during the two-hour panel discussion.
