Two Podcasts: Am Law 100 and E-Discovery

The Am Law 100 is out, The American Lawyer magazine's annual ranking of the nation's highest-grossing law firms. All tolled, they brought in a record $64.5 billion and marked their best five-year run ever. So what do the numbers mean and what can they tell us about the future economic health of the legal industry? This week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer, we discuss the survey with two guests who are well-acquainted with its findings: Aric Press, the magazine's editor-in-chief, and Bruce  MacEwen, consultant to law firms on strategic and economic  issues and author of the blog Adam Smith, Esq. You can get more details about the show and listen to or download it from this page.

Elsewhere on the podcast front, Monica Bay, editor-in-chief of Law Technology News, talks about e-discovery with her guest, Tom O'Connor, director of the Legal Electronic Document Institute. They focus on the question of how best to manage electronic documents and make the leap from hard-copy Bates numbering to digital equivalents. O'Connor tells Bay that it is time for lawyers to rethink how they process and review electronic documents. He and Bay also discuss this month's Louisiana Bar Solo and Small Firm Technology Conference in New Orleans, which they both attended.
