BBA Webinar: Building Business Relationships in a Time of Social Distancing

Tuesday, May 12, 2020 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM


The BBA presents live webinars via Zoom. Access to this program is free, included as part of your member benefit. Please register for this program through your BBA account to receive the Zoom webinar link.  In order to receive the Zoom webinar link, you must register at least two hours before the start time of the program.

Law school taught you how to think like a lawyer and how to do legal research and writing, but your first few years in practice is when you really start to learn the nuts and bolts of practicing law. Providing great service in a cost-effective way is key to your success, but your ultimate success as a lawyer also depends on something else: your ability to build business relationships.

Relationship building is the foundation of all business development, and in this webinar, we will discuss how relationship building can advance your career and why relationship building can be hard for new associates. We will offer strategies to help younger associates to be more effective in cultivating their professional networks both inside and outside of your firm. Part of the discussion will focus on tactics to use at a time of social distancing. While being locked in your house does present some challenges, there are still ways to cultivate relationships while being quarantined.

BBA Webinars are supported by the Joan B. DiCola Fund. The fund was founded in 2015 in memory of Joan B. DiCola to support the programs and initiatives that foster the education and professional development of lawyers and law students. To support this fund contact Erica Southerland at
