Sick of the echo chamber? Do you find yourself nodding off to the same shows saying the same things over and over again? Plaintiff’s lawyer Jay Edelson has made his reputation ignoring conventional thinking. For that, the American Bar Association has recognized him as one of the “most creative minds in the legal industry.” Racking up over $20 billion in settlements and verdicts, he has been called a "titan of the plaintiff’s bar,” a “transformational lawyer,” and, according to the New York Times, law’s “baby-faced boogieman.” His podcast explores new ways of looking at issues ranging from law and politics to movies, sports and art.  He and his guests will cut through the tribalism that is increasingly defining our society and deliver a show that is completely non-compliant.

    Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 42: The One with IAPP CEO, Trevor Hughes

    In Non-Compliant Episode 42, Host Jay Edelson, nationally recognized plaintiff’s attorney, and Founder of Edelson PC, is joined by Trevor Hughes, the CEO of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). Trevor is a leading privacy expert who routinely testifies on issues of privacy, surveillance and privacy-sensitive technologies before the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and the British Parliament.

    To start the show, Jay and Trevor discuss the beginnings of their careers, and the privacy legal landscape in the early 2000s (4:35).

    Next, Jay and Trevor discuss pivotal moments for privacy in the last twenty years (20:00). For Jay, a major paradigm shift was the Edward Snowden leaks. After Snowden leaked classified information to the world, courts started viewing privacy different, and were much more receptive to privacy concerns. For Trevor, one of the first crucial moments was in 2003, when California SB1386 passed.

    To end the show, Trevor and Jay gives their predictions on what the next five years look like for privacy (36:14).

    Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 41: The One with Cooley’s Global Chair of Cyber/Data/Privacy and Internet Practice Groups, Michael Rhodes

    In Non-Compliant Episode 41, Host Jay Edelson, nationally recognized plaintiff’s attorney, and Founder of Edelson PC, is joined by Michael Rhodes, the Global Chair of Cooley LLP's cyber/data/privacy and internet practice groups. Michael represents the world’s leading technology companies in the courtroom when they face new and unsettled issues found at the intersection of law and innovation. While Jay refers to Michael as the “Riddler to [his] Batman”, the world knows him as a seven time Law360 MVP.

    To start the show, Jay and Michael discuss being on opposite sides of the v, and the privacy “ecosystem” (5:00).

    Next, Jay and Michael give listeners insight into their relationship. Because of their history, before filing a number of class actions against Michale’s clients, Jay has brought the evidence to Michael first, in order to give him the opportunity to try and convince the firm not to bring the suit (11:00).

    To end the show, Jay and Michael talk about the current privacy landscape (17:00).

    Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 40: The One with the Founder of Above the Law, David Lat

    Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 40: The One with the Founder of Above the Law, David Lat

    In Non-Compliant Episode 40, Host Jay Edelson, nationally recognized plaintiff’s attorney, and Founder of Edelson PC, is joined by David Lat, Founder of Above the Law, and more recently, Original Jurisdiction.

    To start the show, Jay and David discuss the evolution of David’s legal career. After attending Harvard College and graduating from Yale Law School, David clerked for a federal appellate judge, spent time in Big Law as an Associate, and worked as a federal prosecutor in New Jersey. While working as a prosecutor, David started “Underneath Their Robes”, an anonymous humor and gossip site focused on federal judges, under the pseudonym, Article III Groupie (4:30).

    Next, Jay and David discuss the formation of Above the Law, and the unprecedented impact it has had on the legal field (6:33).

    Later in the show, Jay and David talk about David’s experience with COVID-19, and his decision to live tweet his experience, which included three weeks in the hospital, and one week on a ventilator (16:30).

    To close the show, the two podcast hosts discuss David’s current projects— including Original Jurisdiction, a substack newsletter, which Lat describes as “a source of incisive, fair-minded, and occasionally entertaining commentary about law and the legal profession”, and Movers, Shakers, and Rainmakers, a new podcast, hosted by David and Lateral Link Senior Recruiter, Zach Sandberg, focused on the BigLaw lateral market.

    Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 38: The One Where We Talk Legal Recruiting with Major, Lindsey & Africa Managing Director Summer Eberhard

    In Non-Compliant Episode 38, Host Jay Edelson, nationally recognized plaintiff’s attorney and Founder of Edelson PC, is joined by Summer Eberhard, a Managing Director in Major, Lindsey & Africa’s Associate Practice Group, and Kelsey McCann, Edelson PC’s Chief of Staff and Director of Recruiting.

    To start the show, Jay, Summer, and Kelsey discuss the recent shift in legal recruitment. While BigLaw was once the clear choice for law students and laterals, candidates are considering more than Vault rankings when applying to jobs. Instead of wanting to know about a firm's pro bono practice, candidates are talking to employers about how they reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic (8:30), their views on flexible work arrangements (13:45), and what diversity initiatives they have in place (20:42).

    Later in the show, Summer and Kelsey give listeners advice for navigating the legal job market, including what questions to ask potential employers (35:31).

    Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 37: The One with Former Federal and State Prosecutor Elie Honing

    Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 37: The One with Former Federal and State Prosecutor Elie Honing

    In Non-Compliant Episode 37, Host Jay Edelson, nationally recognized plaintiff’s attorney and Founder of Edelson PC, is joined by Elie Honing, CNN Senior Legal Analyst, former federal and state prosecutor, and bestselling author of Hatchet Man: How Bill Barr Broke the Prosecutor's Code and Corrupted the Justice Department.

    Jay and Elie discuss the colossal mess Bill Barr made in undermining the justice system. Barr, the 77th and 85th United States attorney general under George H. W. Bush and Donald Trump, allowed politics to play a role in individual prosecutions. According to Elie, Barr was a political animal first (which is why he crossed so many lines) and viewed himself as Trump’s personal lawyer— using the DOJ to go after Trump’s political enemies (or perceived political enemies), protecting Trump’s political cronies, etc.

    Later in the show, Jay and Elie discuss Barr’s confirmation process, and where the Justice Department is now. According to Elie, there was a palpable sigh of relief with Bill Barr left office, and the Trump administration moved on. Elie and Jay then pivot to Merrick Garland, and his first few months as the 86th United States attorney general.
