    Ep. 30.0 - Christophe Roquilly, Director of the Augmented Law Institute at EDHEC

    "Future Law" is a global phenomenon with multiple local applications. What's different about the French experience, and what does the French experience share with the future of law elsewhere? The EDHEC Business School in Lille is the home of the new Augmented Law Institute, a purposeful blending of training in law, business, and technology that builds on EDHEC's long-standing investment in multi-purpose professional preparation.  In this episode of the Future Law Podcast, Mike Madison interviews Christophe Roquilly, the Director of the Augmented Law Institute and the architect of EHDEC's law-plus-business programming.

    Mike Madison talks with Giles and Amy about what Avvoka is up to, how that fits in the evolving LegalTech landscape, and how each of them came to be where they are today.

    Ep. 27.0 - Marlene van Nelson, Solo Practitioner in a Tech Era

    In this episode of the Future Law Podcast, Mike Madison talks with Marlene van Nelson, a recent law graduate who followed a classic path: she hung out a proverbial shingle and launched a solo practice.

    A few short but fast-paced years later, she's expanded her practice and found her niche, delivering "people law" services to small business and individual clients while nimbly blending the personal with the technological.

    Marlene tells her own story, from her dream of becoming a lawyer, to the detours along the way, to her current firm:  Trellis Legal.

    All about Trellis Legal.

Cutting-Edge Thinking on Legal Education and Future of Law

Terrific podcast for anyone interested in the future of legal education and the legal industry. Hosts are a nice mix of folks in Australia and the U.S., giving the show a broader perspective than if just one country. Guests offer thoughtful commentary — take a listen!
