In Episode 5 we talk to Ken Grady about lean thinking and the practice of law.

Ken explains that the main goal of lean thinking is to eliminate waste from business processes and that legal work is rife with waste. He also points out that eliminating waste from the practice of law might just free up time for lawyers to do other work, including the pursuit of access to justice initiatives.

Ken is currently a law professor at Michigan State's Legal RnD program and held prior positions in corporate legal departments and law firms.

In this episode, we also talk to Gavin McGrane the founder of PacerPro, a great app that makes it a whole lot easier for attorneys and law firms to stay on top of federal court dockets and pleadings.
