    How 2 Texas lawyers are marketing their practice through song

    How 2 Texas lawyers are marketing their practice through song

    Thanks to social media and the internet, it’s never been easier—or more affordable—for lawyers to advertise. On the other hand, having so many avenues available to lawyers makes it more difficult for anyone to stand out from the crowd. So when Waco, Texas, lawyers Will Hutson and Chris Harris got more than 500,000 views on YouTube for a clip showing them playing guitars and singing about the legal consequences of swallowing, destroying or concealing marijuana in front of police officers, it was almost like winning the lottery. In this new episode of the Legal Rebels Podcast, Hutson and Harris speak with ABA Journal Assistant Managing Editor Victor Li.

    Reinventing the staid field of legal academic writing

    Legal academic publishing isn't synonymous with innovation. The mere mention of it can, for some, bring up repressed memories of the most banal and stuffy aspects of law school. But the Massachusetts Institute of Technology wants to change that. In spring 2019, MIT announced the MIT Computational Law Report. In this new episode of the Legal Rebels Podcast, technology writer Jason Tashea talks to Bryan Wilson, editor-in-chief of the online publication.

Legal Rebels Podcast w/trailblazers

Like Laurence I’m a little biased. As one of the editors at the ABA Journal I’m delighted to see this project underway. It adds a dimension to our popular Legal Rebels project and gives us a platform to deepen the discussion with innovators and trailblazers in the legal profession.

Paperless law office--interesting

Terry Carter does a great job dissecting how to dive in to the paperless lawyer's world. Very solid info here. Our office "went paperless" as to our new files, and left all existing paper files as is. That way we didn't freak out. Svenson has really good advice on how to get started. Perfect lawyer topic.
