People in our society are at risk, with wage and food uncertainty suddenly a critical issue. Rocket Aid hopes to help with these concerns.
BOCA RATON, Fla. (PRWEB) March 30, 2020
Rocket Matter, a leading legal practice management, billing, and payments company, today announced Rocket Aid, a virtual conference for lawyers. This online networking and CLE event will not only help lawyers connect in this time of social distancing, but it will also generate much needed assistance for people most affected economically by the coronavirus.
Sponsors of Rocket Aid include 3545 Consulting, Above the Law, Atticus, Dialpad, and NetDocuments, which are helping with the content, promotion, and execution of the virtual conference.
Rocket Aid will stream live, online on April 16th and 17th, from 10am to 4pm EST each day. The content will cover cutting-edge topics on running an online practice, ways to generate more revenue, and embracing modern tools that will help law firms adapt and thrive in a changing world. In addition to attending educational sessions, participants will have the ability to network during face-to-face virtual “happy hours” and breakout sessions.
“This virus is hitting us all differently—while experts say that most of us will likely escape major sickness, everyone is affected one way or another,” says Larry Port, CEO of Rocket Matter. “In the case of lawyers, we’re beginning to see them lose their jobs as law firms lay people off. Those who are employed can’t go to the office, attend court, get paid, attend CLEs, and even network with one another. Meanwhile other people in our society are also at risk, with wage and food uncertainty suddenly a critical issue. Rocket Aid hopes to help with these concerns.
Rocket Aid will charge a $25 registration fee which will be donated directly to United Way’s COVID-19 Fund, Pro Bono Net, as well as Feeding America, a charity network of more than 200 food banks. Register online here.
Rocket Aid’s content is mostly in place already, but the conference has a call for speakers for panels and additional suggested talks. Planned sessions include the following:
- Panel: COVID-19 and Law Firm Operations: What are We Learning?
- Session: Remote Lawyering Overview: The Tools You Need
