The Dauphin County Bar Association and Widener Law in Harrisburg will create an incubator program in the fall for new lawyers who want to start a solo practice or small law firm, according to pennlive.com.

Both groups are accepting applications from lawyers who are interested in the program and who graduated from Widener Law in 2014.

The program, which takes one year to complete, will accept either two or three lawyers. They will be given office space at the Dauphin County Bar Association in Harrisburg. The association will also provide the lawyers chosen with networking opportunities.

Training sessions for attorneys in the program will be led by Widener Law Associate Clinical Professor J. Palmer Lockard II. Lockard will also serve as mentor for the lawyers.

The lawyers will be required to pay for malpractice insurance and perform 100 hours of pro bono legal work as part of the program. The pro bono work will be coordinated by Mid Penn Legal Services.

“This program is dynamic because it not only gives the new attorneys legal experience and business skills, but it adds affordable legal services to the community,” Widener Law Interim Co-Dean Robyn L. Meadows said. Meadows runs the Harrisburg campus of the law school. “We hope it will build a lasting appreciation for the importance of assisting the underserved, no matter where their careers take them.”

The training sessions will take place in November and December, with the lawyers opening their offices in January.
