    The Rise of Fun Law! | Episode #027

    The Rise of Fun Law! | Episode #027

    The words “fun” and “law” don’t often come in the same sentence.
    ---
    But what would it mean if we started weaving fun into the day-to-day of in-house legal?
    ---
    Sure, it might sound a bit flippant at first, but more and more studies are proving the value that a fun approach to tasks can have on the quality of the output and the fulfilment and sustainability of individuals and teams.
    ---
    Thankfully, in this episode, we’re joined by two advocates for fun law.
    ---
    Elizabeth de Stadler calls herself a rehabilitated lawyer and is now Founding Director of new-era legal consulting firm, Novcon.
    ---
    Elizabeth’s colleague Liezl Van Zyl is a communication designer and plain language enthusiast, and today they share what exactly is “fun law” as well as how in-house legal professionals can embed fun in their day-to-day.

    Intrapreneurship For In-House Legal Professionals | Episode #026

    Intrapreneurship For In-House Legal Professionals | Episode #026

    I think we can all agree that there’s a lot of room for improvement when it comes to in-house legal.
    ---
    And if we want to progress your legal team, your business or the industry more generally, we’re going to need to challenge conventional thinking.
    ---
    This means we need more in-house legal professionals to have an entrepreneurial spirit, to be activators of ideas and be willing to take calculated risks.
    ---
    You’ll know the term entrepreneurship, but what we need in the context of in-house legal, is intrapreneurship. This is when people think and act like entrepreneurs but from within a company.
    ---
    One person who’s especially passionate intrapreneurship for in-house legal is Joel Roy. Joel is a Legal Business Partner with pharma company Novartis and, in this episode, Joel shares how in-house legal professionals can adopt an intrapreneurial approach to deliver better outcomes AND build a more fulfilling career.

    Guiding Principles To Becoming A Great Legal Leader | Episode #025

    In this day and age, I think we can all appreciate the value of great leadership.
    ---
    And yet, leadership isn’t usually taught in law school.
    ---
    In fact, most leaders in the world of legal have stumbled upon the opportunity, and it’s often a big learning curve.
    ---
    So why should in-house legal folks care about leadership? And what are the guiding principles to become a great legal leader?
    ---
    This is what we’re exploring in this episode with Shaun Sethna.
    ---
    Shaun is Deputy GC at real estate marketplace, Altisource.
    ---
    For the past 10 years, Shaun has been a senior legal executive for tech companies, and he also ensures that coaching and mentoring are top priorities in his team.

    How To Gain Buy-In For A CLM Solution | Episode #024

    By now, there’s no denying the rise of legal tech in the in-house legal community.

    And the most popular category in legal tech is, of course, contract management solutions (or CLM for short).

    With Leeway offering a CLM platform, we can’t help but get excited about the huge potential of CLMs for in-house legal teams and their businesses.

    However, one challenge we’re often asked about by in-house lawyers and legal professionals, is how to secure buy-in from the various stakeholders across the business.

    Thankfully, in this episode, we’re joined by the wonderful legal ops expert and legal tech enthusiastic, Marie Widmer.

    Marie has established herself as a forward-thinking and effective legal ops professional during her various in-house roles with the likes of LinkedIn, Pinterest and startup Dapper Labs.

    And having implemented numerous platforms, today Marie shares how to secure buy-in for your CLM from stakeholders across the business.

    How To Manage Your Imposter Syndrome As An In-House Lawyer | Episode #023

    How To Manage Your Imposter Syndrome As An In-House Lawyer | Episode #023

    Whether you’re moving to a new city, shifting from private practice to in-house, or it’s your first experience in the world of legal all together, it’s likely that it’ll take some adjusting.

    Often, a new environment or new responsibilities can leave you feeling out of your depth. This persistent inability to believe that your success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved thanks to your own efforts, is called imposter syndrome.

    It’s something that many if not most people will experience in their lifetime, and learning to manage and respond to this feeling in a healthy way, is critical to ensure that you can continue to thrive.

    One person who is no stranger to imposter syndrome is Sara Fukuhara. Sara is now Associate Corporate Counsel at fast-paced startup, Glowforge.

    And after opening up about her imposter syndrome on LinkedIn, she experienced an overwhelming response from others who could relate.

    In this episode, Sara walks us through her experience and how she’s learning to thrive in spite of her imposter syndrome.
