Workers Comp Matters : The Future of Work: Utopia or Dystopia?

Podcast cover
Read more

Darrell West, an expert on artificial intelligence in the workplace, talks about the critical intersection America is facing and the public policy changes necessary to avoid mass suffering.

Hosts Alan and Judson Pierce probe West on the future of work, with the increased use of automation and the continued growth of temporary and contract jobs.

While part-time, temporary, and contract jobs can add flexibility and come at a low cost for employers, they often don’t come with key social benefits including retirement plans, disability insurance, and health insurance.

Current public policy is based on a traditional model of long-term employment that no longer exists for many. And West asserts that America’s safety net is in dire need of a public policy overhaul that includes understanding and buy-in from the public.

The three discuss the implications of Proposition 22, which California overwhelmingly approved that allows gig economy companies such as Uber to keep categorizing drivers as independent contractors.

Darrell M. West is vice president and director of governance studies and holds the Douglas Dillon Chair at the Brookings Institution.

ABA Journal: Modern Law Library : How your firm can use technology to build business and keep clients

Podcast cover
Read more

As a longtime technology consultant to law firms, Heinan Landa knows that lawyers are cautious customers who can be resistant to change. But the old expectations around client service no longer exist, he says, and meeting the new standards requires a shift in the way law firms do business.

In this episode of the Modern Law Library, Landa tells the ABA Journal's Lee Rawles that he intends his new book, The Modern Law Firm: How to Thrive in an Era of Rapid Technological Change, to help ease lawyers' anxiety about this upheaval by helping them identify their firms' "Technology Operational Maturity Level." By identifying a firm's current maturity level, Landa hopes to provide attorneys with a road map of next steps.

While The Modern Law Firm was written with midsized firms with 10-100 lawyers in mind, Landa says that with adjustments of scale, the advice can also be relevant to solos and to BigLaw attorneys. Whether or not your firm has the resources to hire a full-time chief technology officer, Landa would encourage all attorneys to take an interest in emerging trends, and he suggests a number of ways to make it a manageable part of one's work life.

Landa also discusses the ways that COVID-19 has accelerated the need for technology adoption, and walks through what he has identified as "the Four Pillars of Exceptional Customer Service" to help firms keep and build business.

The Un-Billable Hour : Being a Business Visionary

Podcast cover
Read more

Early in his forensics business, David Notowitz did what many small business owners do. He stumbled around, living off referrals and being a jack of all trades handling bookkeeping, answering phones, and whatever else.

In his third year, Notowitz knew he needed a plan. Rather than a complex business plan, Notowitz created a set of lists, identifying 15 roles, systems, and marketing.

Notowitz tells host Christopher Anderson what he learned implementing his plans, what it was like learning to delegate, and why it’s important for business leaders to hold on to tasks they enjoy doing even if they have the option to delegate.

David Notowitz is the founder and lead forensic expert at the National Center for Audio and Video Forensics.

Lawyer 2 Lawyer : Legal Liability Stemming from the Capitol Riot

Podcast cover
Read more

As the nation celebrated the 59th Presidential Inauguration, the White House, U.S. Capitol and other federal buildings were surrounded by checkpoints, a seven-foot-high fence, thousands of National Guard Troops, and military vehicles patrolling the streets of DC, all stemming from the riot at our U.S. Capitol just over two weeks ago.

Since the riot, there have been federal felony arrests and charges brought against many of those who entered the Capitol or committed related crimes on January 6th. But who else will be held legally liable for these riots in the year ahead? President Trump? Sponsors and planners of the rally pre-riot? Members of Congress? What about those who have incited violence or spread misinformation through their social media channels?

On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by attorney Alan Gassman from the law firm Gassman, Crotty & Denicolo and attorney Michael McAuliffe from the firm, McAuliffe Law PLLC as they discuss legal liability stemming from the U.S. Capitol riot, federal felony charges, and what lies ahead for all involved.

Can the Senate try a former president on an impeachment charge? Must a fact witness recuse themselves from serving as an advocate in a trial?

Law Technology Now : Redefining the Hub

Podcast cover
Read more

While legions are hopeful for a return to normalcy as soon as possible, the pandemic's legacy will be felt for decades. The impact is already sure to prompt change from tech adoption to what defines an entity's business hub.

Ralph Baxter, Daniel Rodriguez, and Dan Linna use their final episode as hosts of LTNow to discuss life before and during the pandemic, and what they predict is next in their respective fields of expertise.

Linna references disruptive innovation theorist Clayton Christensen in considering a different way for law firms to think, plan and talk about technology. Instead of choosing between prioritizing disruptive tech vs operational innovation, Linna says firms need to balance both to keep pace with an evolving industry.

Rodriguez reviews the pandemic's impact on law schools, already struggling with decreased enrollment, law school finances, and student debt. He discusses regulation of law schools, the shift to all online early in the pandemic, grading changes, and how remote and hybrid learning is creating opportunities for improving teaching during precious hours in person and via technology while remote.

For law firms, Ralph Baxter expects the pandemic will have game-changing ramifications. Specifically, he believes the disruption shared globally created a gateway for change for an industry on the precipice of progress. Years of talking gave way to sudden action by necessity.

Baxter predicts changes and improvements beyond travel and space, down to the fundamental concept of how the workplace hub is defined. A brick-and-mortar space was the hub of activity pre-pandemic. But the new hub is information and the technology that connects people and processes to that information.

Ralph Baxter served as Chairman & CEO of Orrick for nearly a quarter-century and is a member of Intapp's board of directors.

Daniel W. Linna Jr. has a joint appointment at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and McCormick School of Engineering as the Director of Law and Technology Initiatives and a Senior Lecturer.

Former dean Daniel B. Rodriguez is the Harold Washington Professor at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
