Legal Resource Network (LRN) provides a forum in which its members can enhance their professional success through contacts, referrals, information exchange and active networking. The role of member-to-member networking is at the core of the organization’s mission. Members can leverage LRN to benefit themselves, their practices, their clients and each other. It is also a collegial environment where members meet for weekly calls and for in-person events to better know each other and to connect on a personal level.
Membership is limited to attorneys and accountants and to representatives of other organizations that serve the legal and accounting professions by providing products and/or services used by those professions. All LRN members are welcome to attend meetings of the organization on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Members who are attorneys and accountants can also participate in meetings of LRN Plus on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, in addition to the meetings on the first and third Wednesday of each month that are open to all members. During each meeting, members have opportunities to meet with other members in smaller “breakout rooms” where they can collaborate one-on-one or in small groups in order to assist each other informally.
LRN also provides online webinars several times each year. By collaborating with the Accountant-Attorney Alliance, LRN arranges for some of these events to confer on attendees eligibility for CLE credits (for attorneys) and CPE credits (for accountants). The webinars are free for LRN members and provide members opportunities to convey and receive useful information and analysis of substantive topics of interest to practicing attorneys, accountants, and to invited guests, such as LRN members’ clients and potential clients.
LRN publishes a monthly newsletter for its members. The newsletter contains member’s articles on substantive topics and a calendar of upcoming events, and events staged by other organizations that might be of interest to LRN’s members.
