Podcasts have become all the rage lately, and you can usually find a podcast about practically any and all topics, including law-related topics. Podcasts have the ability to give you the perspective of people from all walks of life, and they’re extremely accessible. Read on for some of the best legal podcasts that any lawyer would enjoy.
Likely one of the longest-running podcasts on the internet, Lawyer 2 Lawyer has been discussing the legal world since 2005. Host J. Craig Williams is a highly experienced lawyer who wished to use his knowledge of the legal field to help educate other lawyers and discuss a wide range of legal topics. Williams invites other professionals in the industry onto the show so the two of them can examine current events, recent rulings, and much more, all while having in-depth discussions on the topics.
Technology is always changing and has become a staple of everyday life in a myriad of ways. It impacts every industry including the legal industry. This is why Sharon D Nelson and Jim Calloway decided to start The Digital Edge, a show that covers how lawyers use technology and how law both impacts and is impacted by ever-changing technology. The two hosts invite industry professionals such as speakers and authors as well as legal technologists, all discussing how law and technology intersect every day.
Quite different from the other shows on this list but still incredibly useful for lawyers, Serial takes the serial format for its episodes which means that the plotline continues from one episode to the next. The interesting part is that every story is something real that happened and made headlines. Hosted by investigative journalist Sarah Koenig, she takes a look at interesting stories and discusses how each of them played out, giving attorneys a look at some of the more interesting legal cases that occurred in our country over the years.
Hosted by Bob Ambrogi and published every week, LawNext is another show about legal technology. Bob is an expert in anything and everything surrounding legal technology, and every episode features a new guest that is changing the legal landscape and making justice accessible to everybody. Anyone who is interested in legal innovation should give this show a shot.
