July 21, 2014 – Cooley Law School student Christopher Perez has been selected to serve as a student representative on the executive council of the General Practice Solo and Small Firm (GPSSF) Section of the Florida Bar. Each year the GPSSF selects one student to serve on the council. The GPSSF provides a forum for discussions and the exchange of ideas that leads to the improvement and development of the economics of law practice and the delivery of legal services.
“It’s an honor to be the first Cooley student to serve on the executive council of the General Practice Solo and Small Firm Section of the Florida Bar,” said Perez. “I hope to share insights and expectations of individuals who will soon be going out to practice law, while at the same time gaining valuable information that I can share on how to be successful in the business of practicing law.”
GPSSF is an organization within the Florida Bar open to members in good standing who have an interest in the economics of law practice while enhancing the skills of those in general practice, solo and small firms, as well as any lawyer who has interests beyond the boundaries of a single professional specialty.
