The Need to Support Law Students and Lawyers with Disabilities
How can the legal profession be more supportive of law students and lawyers with disabilities? In a profession already marked by the hypercompetitive pursuit of performance and achievement, young lawyers often face pressure to downplay their disabilities. In addition, access to accommodations for law students and lawyers with disabilities can sometimes be difficult, adding a lot of stress to an already stressful process.
In this special episode, host Sonia Russo sits down with three different lawyers to hear their stories, struggles and triumphs of dealing with disability in law school and the legal profession. Hear how these three inspiring young lawyers overcame the unique challenges of law school, navigated the LSAT and bar exam, their process of finding a job after law school, and their continued work and perseverance in the legal industry today.

Law Firms Stunned by Cyber Insurance Premiums, Security Requirements, and Exclusions
In August, Lloyds of London announced that beginning in 2023 all of its insurer groups will exclude “catastrophic” state-backed attacks from their cyber insurance policies. And, unfortunately, this is just one of many on a growing list of potential exclusions for insurers worldwide, even though premium prices have continued to climb. So, is cybersecurity still worth it? Sharon Nelson and Jim Calloway talk with John Simek about the elements driving these shifts and what you need to know to make the best choices for your law firm.
John W. Simek is vice president of the digital forensics, managed information technology and cybersecurity firm Sensei Enterprises.

Dueling Speeches Spice Up Supreme Court Offseason
And we speak of mermaids and copyrights.
There are people out there planning to digitally replace Ariel in the new Little Mermaid movie with a computer generated white character. This is great news... if you're Disney's outside IP enforcement counsel! Meanwhile, the SCOTUS offseason heats up with Chief Justice Roberts complaining that the public questions the Court's legitimacy and Justice Kagan indirectly points out that it's his fault. Also, maybe ACB forgot whole parts of the First Amendment because she doesn't plan on those existing much longer. And we go down an antitrust rabbit hole at one point.
I love the varied topics of the podcasts. Great legal topics.
Content is decent but too frequently only provides a liberal perspective. Needs more balance in ideology
I wasn’t really looking for partisan social/political commentary. Tried a few episodes, found the content lacking, and unsubscribed.
