There are a lot of resources on the internet on how lawyers can use for business development. In this module, rather than subject you to another Mark Beese video, I’m including a webinar hosted by, featuring Nancy Myrland, a frequent speaker and advisor to lawyers on how to use LinkedIn. In the additional resources, you will find other tips and insights on how not just to create a compelling profile, but how to use LinkedIn to connect with potential clients and referral sources.
