Law Practice Management Collection Subject Guide
Much of our Law Practice Management Collection consists of slender little books, which can make it challenging to find coverage of a particular topic. Luckily, we’ve created a Subject Guide to the collection to help you find what you need! The Subject Guide breaks down the collection into 13 different topics, so you can choose a subject and see a list of books that discuss it. Plus, take a look at our other research guides.
Law Practice Management Collection Featured
The September issue of San Francisco Attorney magazine features an article about the Law Library's Law Practice Management Collection!
The article presents the SFLL's LPM resources on managing law firm finances and profitability. Authored by Reference Librarian Andrea Woods, this article first appeared on BASF's Legal by the Bay blog. Head to Legal by the Bay for posts on our LPM resources on opening a law firm, marketing and business development, and client relations—and stay tuned for future posts!

Law Library Book of the Month:
Federal Intellectual Property Codes Plus (2016-2017)
By Paul Fulbright et. Al.
Practitioners who are familiar with California Practice, Civil Pretrial will quickly recognize O'Connor's comprehensive-yet elegant style in this compact Intellectual Property resource. Federal IP Codes Plus is a first stop for general and IP practitioners researching the Trademark Act, Copyright Act, Patent Act, Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and Regulations of the USPTO and Copyright Office. The codes are annotated with related case summaries and extensive citations to major intellectual property treatises, including McCarthy on Trademarks and Unfair Competition and Nimmer on Copyright (available for further research at the San Francisco Law Library). Use the quick tabs or the extensive index to find sections—frequently broken down into annotated subsections for even quicker pinpoint referencing. Enhanced intuitive features include flag symbols that alert readers to changes, a primer on the American Invents Act, and other miscellaneous laws relating to Federal Intellectual Property. Save time by making O’Connor’s your first stop when researching Federal Intellectual Property.
