Please enjoy this micro-learning podcast where Will Pett interviews Vanessa Lozzi and asks the following questions below as it pertains to COVID-19 and What the Future May Look Like:


-With COVID-19 forcing everyone to work from home for an extended period of time, do you think we’ll see more legal departments allowing employees to work remotely some or all of the time?
-Will any process changes necessitated by the pandemic carry over long-term? For example, will more lawyers become comfortable with e-signed documents.
-Will legal departments change their staffing philosophies in response to the pandemic? Will roles like Legal Ops seem more or less valuable to GCs moving forward?
-What has you company or legal department doing to keep in contact with employees?​  ​

In this micro learning podcast series, law firms and corporate clients will briefly share success stories and learn from one another.

In this specific podcast, we will focus on the following: 
1. Innovation is one of the hot topics in the industry these days. On the law firm side, we hear a lot about clients wanting/expecting us to innovate. Do you expect this of your outside counsel?
2. Given the current pandemic, how are you seeing your law firm providers innovate? Are there examples that stand out? Anything that has surprised or especially impressed you?
3. How are you innovating within the corporate legal department during this crisis? How do you maintain an atmosphere of innovation via a remote workforce?
4. What would be your advice to law firms around innovation, in the time of coronavirus?
5. What would be your advice to other corporate in-house legal teams regarding innovation
