Legal Podcasts for Your Holiday Travel

Should your holidays involve travel, what better way to while away the hours spent behind the steering wheel or sitting on airplanes than listening to the latest legal podcasts? Here are some recent shows you might want to download onto your player of choice.

Lawyer2Lawyer. Sure it may seem self-serving of me to plug a podcast I cohost, but our holiday show is worth hearing for the guests: lawyer Larry Savell talking about his new holiday album, lawyer Reid Trautz talking about his annual holiday gift guide for lawyers, and lawyer Lisa Solomon talking about her online store with products for lawyers, The Billable Hour Company.

This Week in Law. Denise Howell and guests discuss social networking surveillance, Psystar, Tiger Woods, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, and more.

Ethics Pitfalls for Practitioners. From the ABA Center for Continuing Legal Education comes a panel of experts discussing the five most common ways in which lawyers get in trouble. You can also download the program's written materials.

Value billing and the use of transparent pricing. Host Rodney Dowell, director of the Massachusetts Law Office Management Assistance Program, talks about value billing and using transparent pricing to become more competitive with guest Jay Shepherd, founder of the Shepherd Law Group.

Cloud Computing for Lawyers. In this latest installment of the ABA Law Practice Management Section podcast The Digital Edge, Erik Mazzone and Ben Schoor join cohosts Jim Calloway and Sharon Nelson to discuss cloud computing.

Value-based fees in the mediation and ADR world. This is the first episode of Cafe Mediate, a new podcast from Tammy Lenski in which professional mediators discuss their work. For this inaugural program, Lenski is joined by mediators Amanda Bucklow and Diane Levin.

Going mobile: The rise of the mobile platform. Co-hosts Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell take a look at the growing movement to go mobile and its implications for the legal profession. Their guest is Jeremy Diviney, co-founder of Bill4time.

Is Google monopolizing something, and if so, what? This podcast from The Federalist Society features a panel of lawyers and others who debate the antitrust implications of Google.

Align your agendas. With so much focus on containing costs, it can be difficult for IT leaders to successfully advocate for projects. In this latest episode of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay welcomes Jo Haraf, former CIO of Morrison & Foerster and founder of Haraf Professional Services, to discuss how IT leaders can mesh their strategies with firm goals by creating “IT Portfolios.”

No doubt, I've neglected to mention many others. But these should be enough to keep your MP3 player humming, at least until next year.
