Do We Still Need Offices?

In this episode recorded over 60 days into the pandemic shelter-in-place, we speak with Zach Abramowitz, who approaches the legal industry from his perspective as a journalist, lawyer, investor, entrepreneur, and all-around connector in the field. Zach and Anand talk about the concerns, ideas, and predictions we are hearing from all sides of legal including whether law firms can still justify spending millions on expensive skyscraper real estate while increasing numbers of attorneys will work from home, how technology adoption looks in periods of uncertainty and fear, and overlaps between data science in military and defense tech and legaltech.

Do We Still Need Offices?

Law School By Laptop

Today we share a conversation with Erwin Chemerinsky, a preeminent constitutional law scholar, Supreme Court litigator, and Dean of Berkeley Law. In this episode, we talk to Erwin about several topics, including Berkeley Law’s response to the pandemic, his vision for innovative legal education, advice to new students and graduating 3Ls, and how he picks which cases he takes on pro bono, many of which he argues at the Supreme Court or Circuit Court level. Finally, he talks about new constitutional law issues arising out of the pandemic, and what key decisions we should watch for in this Supreme Court term.

The A.I. Frontier

Today we share a conversation with Amy Wegener, the Chief Practice Innovation Officer at AmLaw 25 law firm Paul Hastings and Joe Dunn, a former California State Senator, former CEO of the California State Bar, and a highly successful trial lawyer. Recently, Anand had the honor of presenting at a class they teach jointly at UC Irvine School of Law entitled 'Pushing the AI Frontier'. In this episode, Amy and Joe talk about how the AI class came about and what practical knowledge they impart to their students, cutting edge projects that both of them are working on, and what they view as the future of the legal industry. A note: We recorded this episode with Amy and Joe remotely, while sheltering at home due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We know many of you will listen to this cooped up at home juggling childcare, work, and probably many other things. On behalf of the Casetext team, we wish you the best and we’re honored to be able to provide you some interesting perspectives in some trying times.

A Robot Walks Into a Courtroom

Today we are honored to present our conversation Richard Susskind, one of the worlds leading intellectuals on technology in the law and the future of work.

In our conversation, Richard considers the future of our court system, the incentives for law firms to modernize, and his prediction that tomorrow's core legal jobs will revolve around technology and the creation of systems.

A Robot Walks Into a Courtroom

It's Not All Perry Mason

We're honored to share our conversation with David Wilkins, a Law Professor at Harvard Law School and the Faculty Director of the Center on The Legal Profession. Anand recently had the opportunity to present to Professor Wilkins’ class at HLS, The Legal Profession, where he shared his thoughts on technology’s impact on the future of legal jobs. Afterward, we had the chance to sit down with Professor Wilkins to talk about how Richard Nixon affected his legal career, three key forces affecting the legal industry, and how he educates students on the realities of legal practice. As it turns out, it’s not as glamorous as Perry Mason.

Intuition And Indicators

Today we share our conversation with Evan Parker, a Ph.D statistics expert and founder of Parker Analytics. Evan is ushering in a new era of data-driven decision-making for law firms by working with them to collect, assess, and evaluate their data, optimizing how they do business. He uses data to help them discover problematic trends in recruitment, diversity, and efficiency, then identifies their solutions. He recently discussed one of these trends on Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast, Revisionist History. In this episode, Evan shares some surprising insights he has unearthed through looking at firm data, like how a good grade in torts is a better predictor of success than a good grade in contracts, why a top tier law degree does not predict greater success at a law firm than a mid-tier law degree, and the key factors causing certain demographic groups at law firms to fall behind, and others to succeed.

Recently, Doxly was acquired and integrated into document life cycle powerhouse Litera Microsystems. In this episode, Haley takes us through the conception, growth, and sale of her company, including all of the failures and triumphs along the way.
