ILTA - International Legal Technology Association

In our second installment of Emerging Roles in Legal Amy Monaghan speaks with members of Orrick's innovation team. In this "fanel," we discuss an array of topics, including: what it means to drive change within an organization, how they are working to empower attorneys to practice at the top of their licenses, and the importance of mentorship. You will hear from each Orrick team member about their roles and contributions to Orrick's innovation initiatives.

Amy Monaghan, Senior Practice Innovations Manager, Perkins Coie, had the great honor of speaking with Jason Barnwell, Assistant General Counsel—Modern Legal at Microsoft for this inaugural episode of the Emerging Roles in Legal podcast series. Jason never fails to provide thought-provoking insights and my personal favorite quote from this episode is that "business presents a candy store of broken things!" Of course, we see the broken things as opportunities for innovation, which is where these new skillsets and emerging roles in legal are needed.

If you're interested in hearing more from Jason, check out the Business of Law Podcast and also his posts on Legal Evolution (I recommend this post on designing knowledge work).

Be on the lookout for a next episode soon!
