About the Seminar
South Carolina has one of the nation's most favorable climates for small businesses and startups. In fact, it's no secret that small businesses are the backbone of the state's economy, employing more than 654,000 people and comprising more than 90% of our workforce. Investment capital is coming into the state and the SC Chamber of Commerce expects continued growth.

With this kind of environment, opportunities abound for lawyers to help advise and represent small businesses and startups. This powerful program features an experienced faculty and focuses on practical solutions to common business issues in order to provide attendees with the tools they need to help develop and grow a business law practice.

This program is designed much like a Swiss Army Knife, a multi-purpose tool with multiple applications that everyone can benefit from. If you represent or want to start or build a practice representing South Carolina's small business community, this is the one stop you need to succeed!
