How technologically competent must a lawyer be? How secure must lawyers keep client data? Can lawyers accept credit cards or cryptocurrency? What should lawyers do if they receive a bar complaint?
The business of law is constantly evolving. Staying out of trouble requires that lawyers understand the latest interpretations and applications of the ethics rules. It also requires us to figure out what to do when the rules and modern business and technology are not in sync.

Useful Advice for Everyone
The topics that this podcast covers are so relevant to everyone- not just lawyers. I like the mood and tone of Megan's podcasts, it's a great way to gently ease into the start of my day. I really enjoy listening; as a graphic designer and entrepreneur I've found that some of the episodes had me thinking out of the box on how these topics apply to my trade. Highly recommend.
A great resource!
If you’re a lawyer, this is a great podcast , no matter where you’re licensed. Megan covers topics relevant to her California practice, but raise good points for all lawyers. It regularly gives me heartburn and anxiety (ZOMG I'M GONNA LOSE MY LICENSE FOR SNEEZING WRONG), but it forces me to get better and faster and more accurate at things for my clients.
A great listen for every lawyer! Megan is an incredible host and the guests she brings on are some of the brightest minds in the legal world (she is too).
