Description from American Bar Association publisher website :
Small-town America is not what it used to be. The transportation and communications revolutions have spread the advantages and amenities of big cities into less populous regions--and in many cases, these regions are still very much underserved by the legal community. Moreover, housing is affordable, commuting to and from work is a non-issue, and schools have fewer problems than their urban counterparts.
Practicing Law in Small-Town America, in three distinct and thorough parts, paints a picture of what small-town practice is like in its rich diversity, examines how local practitioners got to where they are, and details what an aspiring small-town lawyer needs to know and do in order to locate in--or relocate to--a small community. The book includes:
" Setting the Small-Town Practice Scene
" Defining "Small-Town America"
" What's Different about Small-Towns?
" How Small-Town America and Law Practice Has Changed
" Small-Town Practitioner Profiles
" Many Diverse Types of Practice
" Where to Locate
" What to Do When You Get There
