In this episode of The Paralegal Voice, Vicki Voisin interviews Katie Clark, J.D., senior legal staffing consultant at Beacon Hill Staffing Group, about how paralegals could benefit from working with a recruiter, the current nature of the paralegal job market, the best resume length, and how to get legal experience. The top paralegal positions are in litigation and corporate law, Clark explains, and those who work with staffing agencies are given exclusive job opportunities and interview consulting for free (the agency is compensated by employers). She goes on to discuss how to balance your resume with the right amount of detail and how to present your skills acquired from non-paralegal jobs and education. Most importantly, she says, job-seeking paralegals should not limit their mindsets to a specific result. Special thanks to our sponsors, Boston University, NALA, and ServeNow.
During a recent trip, Lawyer 2 Lawyer host Bob Ambrogi visited Legal Talk Network headquarters in Denver, Colorado. While there, he interviewed hosts from another legal podcast called ‘FOSS+beer’. With their general focus on law, technology, and open source software, hosts Mark Donald, Jilayne Lovejoy, and the mysterious Boups the Beerman navigate potentially irreverent topics while sampling local libations on each episode. In an effort to respond in kind, we decided to adjourn from our comfy studio in favor of our neighbor’s craft brewery establishment, Beryl’s Beer Co. Tune in to hear this spirited discussion about the indemnification, intellectual property, and ethical issues associated with open source software and the practice of law. In addition, listen to our very own Trent Carlyle, owner and chief technology officer of Legal Talk Network, and Chad Jolly, senior software developer, as they join the conversation and talk about the world of modern software development while Eric Nichols...

Monday’s Supreme Court ruling in Comptroller of the Treasury of Maryland v. Wynne was less notable for the concrete issue it resolved than for the broad rift it exposed between, on the one hand, a clear majority of the Court and, on the other hand, Justices Scalia and Thomas. Reiterating in the strongest possible terms points that each has made in the past, Justices Scalia and Thomas disavowed a principle that has been part of American jurisprudence for nearly two centuries. The Issue in Wynne Wynne involved the application of the so-called Dormant Commerce Clause (DCC) to a provision of the Maryland personal income tax law. Like most other states, Maryland taxes its residents on the income that they earn both in and out of state. However, unlike most other states, Maryland does not give a full credit for taxes that residents pay to the states in which they earn out-of-state income. As a consequence, a Maryland resident who earns out-of-state income is subject to less favorable tax treatment...
Welcome to Ill Repute, a podcast about reputation and the forces in the 24 hour news cycle and social media that inpact it.

When Sarah Koenig of This American Life created Serial, she made the word podcast a household name. But she did more than that. She shared her obsession over a murder case with millions of people. For most, this was passive entertainment. Some went farther. Fans started a thread on the popular website Reddit devoted to helping Koenig solve the crime. They searched databases for clues and connected with people involved in the crime. A few went even farther. At least one Serial listener started casing the home of key witness and alternative suspect Jay Wilds. Wilds filed a restraining order. Serial fans aren’t the only ones using the internet to try to solve crimes. There is an army of amateur sleuths all over the country trying to crack cold cases. They’re usually armed with nothing more than laptops, public information and apparently a lot of spare time. Welcome to the future, complete with crowdsourced law enforcement. This week we focus on the effect it’s had on the real world. It looked...

This episode is presented by The United States Air Force Judge Advocate General's Corp. The integrity of our criminal justice system depends on every individual receiving high-quality legal counsel -- even those who are guilty. Sometimes the attorney is hired by the defendant. Other times the attorney is appointed by the government. In this episode, Vermont criminal defense lawyer and Washington & Lee College of Law alumna Jessica Burke details her role in the criminal justice system. From her approach to plea bargaining to her philosophy on fee arrangements, her choices underscore the importance of letting clients make informed choices about their future. After all, it's the client's freedom on the line. Although several different jobs in Virginia, Jessica moved to Vermont to be closer to family. She's about to hire the firm's third attorney, just a few years after starting a solo practice while working at a winery. Jessica tells us how she managed to grow her firm in a saturated legal...

Frequent contributor Greg Weiner speaks with Richard Reinsch about his latest book, American Burke: The Uncommon Liberalism of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, arguing that Moynihan’s liberalism combined belief in what government could and should do with a profound sense of limitations on what it could do and how it should do it.
Are laws catching up with the modern family?
What did you just call me? Many Americans are late -- way late -- on their debt obligations. But debt does not entitle a debt collector to use racial epithets, shame consumers, or call them at certain times. In fact, these practices are illegal. In this episode, Minnesota consumer rights lawyer and William Mitchell College of Law alumnus Pete Barry explains the federal law that drives his law practice. What does Pete do? "I sue debt collectors." He uses this phrase on his website, as well as at cocktail parties. Explaining what he does in such simple, yet clear terms helps him market to those who don't realize they've been legally harmed. Pete has owned his own firm since he graduated law school nearly 20 years ago. He describes important criteria for taking a client, what's at the core of every lawsuit, and why we're all better off for the accountability he causes. This episode is hosted by Debby Merritt, a law professor at Ohio State University. Episode Links Barry & Helwig, LLC Fair...

In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell discuss recent commentary on the last decade of blawging, the current state of blawging, and the future of online interaction and marketing for lawyers. They discuss whether legal blogs are still popular, how the online landscape has changed for legal professionals, and what might be replacing the personal law blog. Tom notes that due to podcasts, social media, and general writing exhaustion, individual lawyers are updating less often or have stopped all together. Dennis talks about how there are more law firm and group blogs that are SEO optimized and targeted for marketing. They both agree that blawging is not dead, but has changed remarkably in the past ten years. Special thanks to our sponsor, ServeNow.
In the eighth episode of "Wait, What?", the show delves into the unintended consequences of technology. Jason starts off with an example of the dual uses of an everyday hammer. The guys start talking about the misuse of things like the Tor - which are intended for good, but are used for nefarious things as well. Another unintended consequence of technological progress is the jack-hammering in the background of the podcast (if you're listening at home, take a shot every time Jason brings this up during the podcast). The guys then attempt to answer the question of whether or not we (as creators of technology) have an obligation to think about the unintended uses of it. Jason, Matt and Joe each point out that children's chemistry sets used to contain radioactive materials and poisons that otherwise intelligent adults didn't think were bad for kids. The show is attending Awesome Con in Washington, D.C. at the end of May and the guys are hoping to wrangle some of their favorite celebrities for...

The 2014-15 Supreme Court term is getting into high gear, with oral arguments last week in Obergefell v. Hodges, dealing with gay marriage bans. Decisions in Obergefell and several other high-profile cases have yet to be announced.

Josh Blackman, creator of FantasySCOTUS, gives us a “half-time” update on the current FantasySCOTUS season.

Reed recently appeared on a panel at The Heritage Foundation, an event co-sponsored by PLF, to separate the facts from fiction about the controversial rule.

During last week’s oral argument in the same-sex marriage cases, Justice Antonin Scalia posed an arresting question for the plaintiffs’ lawyer, Mary Bonauto: If she wins a constitutional right to same-sex marriage for her clients, would that mean that clergy who will not officiate at same-sex wedding ceremonies would forfeit the power to officiate at opposite-sex wedding ceremonies? Bonauto seemed understandably flustered because neither she nor any other advocate of marriage equality had ever implied or requested that clergy be obligated to perform same-sex ceremonies as a condition of performing opposite-sex ceremonies. Indeed, Professor Marci Hamilton referred to Justice Scalia’s question in her Verdict column last week as a “no-brainer.” I agree with Professor Hamilton as a predictive matter. If the Court finds a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, clergy whose own religious doctrine forbids same-sex marriage undoubtedly will not be obligated to officiate at any marriage ceremonies...

When Pam Baschab first started campaigning to be a judge in Alabama, back in the 1980s, it was literally a family affair. “My husband was a big help. My friends, my 36 cousins,” Baschab laughs. “I have 36 first cousins.” Baschab remembers her whole campaign costing around $20,000. She made speeches at church potlucks and county fairs. She would stand at the podium, hold up a house window, and say, “This is my window of opportunity. We need to get some women in there, and we need to get some Republican women in there.” I know, it’s so folksy. And it worked. She won. So fast forward to 2000. Baschab’s been a judge around 12 years and she decides to run for the Alabama Supreme Court. “You know when you are going to run for office basically, there are certain power brokers that you have to go see,” Baschab says. Baschab’s a Republican, so she has to go see Winton Blount, the head of the Republican party and the president of the Business Council of Alabama — the local wing of the Chamber of...
April 20, 2015 | As companies and health systems are quickly adopting the idea of hosting data “in the cloud,” regulatory agencies are crafting laws to protect private customer and patient data.

In this week's Polsinelli Podcast, Polsinelli’s Jean Marie Pechette explores the issues.

Why does police accountability matter in this context? How does the knowledge that severe abuses—brutality, sexual assault, false arrest, even death—have gone unpunished inform and shape encounters between youth and police? What are the costs and harms of the absence of accountability? How does the lack of accountability affect the relationships between youth and police? How does it impact our effectiveness in addressing crime and violence? How could improved transparency and accountability affect youth/police relations?
