Amber Kusat ,

Great Podcast!

As an owner of a court reporting and litigation support business my biggest hurdle has been to explain the importance of legal operations and choosing a vendor. This podcast has been great to learn more about the progression of the industry! CLOC is a great association as well.

WOW!!!

Listening to the experiences of these CLOC legal ops trailblazers gives this legal-ops-professional-trapped-in-the-body-of-an-attorney so much hope!

The CLOC Talk Podcast is excellent: funny, informative, inspirational and so very relevant!!

NewlyMingling ,

So helpful and relevant!

As an attorney fascinated by legal technology and operations and their interaction with business, I appreciate this podcast and Jen’s passion for spreading the message about the CLOC Core 12. The discussions about the fear of judgement from lawyer friends and even family members when a licensed attorney makes the “switch” to legal operations is particularly relevant and accurate. Then reality is that legal operations departments will only expand in the future with advancements in legal tech, the effects of the pandemic, and both of their respective economic consequences.
