"I have learned, that if one
advances confidently in the direction
of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life
he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
- Henry David Thoreau

Mr. Rooney will also oversee the launch of Touro Law’s incubator, providing affordable office space as well as support and supervision for recent graduates interested in entering solo practice. Generally, incubation is a business support process that accelerates the development of start-up companies by providing entrepreneurs with an array of targeted resources and services. Our incubator’s main goal is to produce successful, public service oriented practitioners who will leave the program after 18 months with a financially viable and freestanding practice. Part of the route to this success will be through doing well by doing good. The lawyers in the incubator will provide pro bono and low bono services to substantially increase access to civil legal services for those in need, while the lawyers gain valuable experience and network to develop their practices.
Touro Law Center's Career Services Office is assisting Mr. Rooney in starting a focus group of recent alumni with a passion for public interest and solo practice. This focus group will meet with him late in the day on several occasions. Information from the focus group will be used to launch the incubator.
If you are interested in participating in the incubator focus group, please email your resume to Margarett Williams, Assistant Dean for Career Services, at email@example.com as soon as possible. In the text of your email, please explain why you are interested in participating in this endeavor.
