Dustin Burrows Talks Law Firm Finances at TTU Law School
Dustin Burrows, a partner in The McCleskey Law Firm, will speak on Monday, January 27, at the Texas Tech University School of Law’s Academy for Leadership in the Legal Profession.
Dustin, a 2004 graduate of the TTU Law School (he also received his MBA that same year from TTU), will discuss law firm finances.
“As important as it is to master the craft of being a lawyer, it’s also critical that law students understand that they’re entering a profession that is also a business,” Dustin says. “I’ve seen many lawyers who were perfectly good legal technicians run into trouble because they didn’t understand the financial side of the profession. Having a solid footing in both business and the law (thanks to MY Texas Tech education), I have a different perspective from many other lawyers, so I want to share with them what I’ve learned in the last 10 years.”
