I just graduated and passed the bar in my state. I am starting my own practice now, and I believe I will be successful.
To some of the people above, practicing out of law school is not necessarily malpractice. Limiting your practice and engagements to tasks you can do or learn to do is important. Anyway, I do carry insurance, I "go bare" as it were.
To the OP, my law school does not have a class on Solo practice after LS, but one of its unofficial mottos is that students will be able to do so after graduation, especially litigation. When you couple that will preparing to be a solo in law school, by reading, collecting sources and contacts it doesn't seem so impossible.
If anyone has any questions for me I'll try to check this sooner or later. Its important that students think about this option, especially if your family has an ongoing professional practice that you could "hook into" for a law firm.
Anyway, it *can* be done, and *is done* ALL the time.
