Jim Calloway Gets It

Hosting Blawg Review #49, Jim Calloway's Law Practice Tips Blog is the well-deserved winner of the 2005 TechnoLawyer@Awards for Favorite Practice Management Blog. (You know you've won some recognition when the two other finalists in the category are none other than Bruce MacEwen and Dennis Kennedy.)

Jim is the Director of the Oklahoma Bar Association's Management Assistance Program and served as chair of ABA TECHSHOW 2005. He frequently writes and speaks on legal technology issues, Internet research, law office management and organization, and legal ethics.

One of the regular features of his popular blawg is his weekly selection of the "Website of the Week" and recently, as he prepares for the upcoming "60 Sites in 60 Minutes" for ABA TECHSHOW 2006, he's introduced one of his own new websites.
The OBA Management Assistance Program Starting a Law Practice Web Directory recently was published online. My loyal assistant, Sharon Dotson, put a lot of work into it and I did a little. We are both pleased with the result. (Well, we are pleased with version 1. Stay tuned.) The directory includes many articles of interest to the new small firm lawyer and links to many other resources, including the online resources of my fellow bar practice management advisors. We hope many will find the information here valuable. This site is posted in support of a new day-long program that the OBA is offering next month called The New Lawyer Experience. You can read all about this free program to help Oklahoma lawyers get started with their new law practices. Enjoy. And, if we missed anything really great with the directory, drop me an e-mail about it. There's always version 2.
From this directory, Dan Hull, who blogs at What About Clients?, draws special attention to Calloway's article "The Client-Centered Law Practice" that originally appeared in the Oklahoma Bar Journal in two issues, Part 1 and Part 2. "The title alone shows Jim Calloway gets it," remarks Dan Hull, who knows what he's talking about.

Obviously, Blawg Review is very fortunate to have as host, Jim Calloway, a lawyer who is a leader among leaders, not only in his State Bar, which is OK, but in the entire blawgosphere.
