Good Content for GCs
This is a good quick listen and so far I’ve gotten a few good ideas from it.
Hosted by an attorney - thumbs up
The host himself is an attorney, so the discussions with legal guests comes across natural and conversational. Great real-world examples of innovative legal departments (no fluffy stuff.)
