Ethics on the Edge: Disruptive Technology and Compliance (Jun 2019)

In an age of accelerating change, technology-driven innovation keeps lawyers busy. How do you advise a client when their business model is so disruptive it tests the bounds of existing law? And what are the ethical considerations you must weigh to make sure you don’t violate your own duties as a lawyer while helping your client meet its business objectives?

The Introverted Lawyer: Championing the Strengths of Quiet Advocates, and Authentically Amplifying Our Voices (Apr 2019)

While naturally loquacious law professors, law students, lawyers, and judges thrive in a world dominated by the Socratic question-and-answer method and rapid-fire oral discourse, quiet thinkers and writers can be sidelined. The Introverted Lawyer illuminates the valuable gifts that introverted, shy, and socially anxious individuals bring to the legal profession—including active listening, deep thinking, empathy, impactful legal writing, creative problem-solving, and thoughtful communication.  It offers tangible steps for introverted attorneys to capitalize on their abilities, to become more confident and effective practitioners, and to diminish unwarranted stress. It also provides practical advice to law office mentors and others in developing these attorneys and their greatly needed proficiencies to the legal profession.
