Above the Law - Thinking Like a Lawyer : Law School Professor Just Won't Stop Begging To Use Racial Slurs
Eugene Volokh used his blog to whine some more about how his constant demands to be respected for throwing around racial epithets in class keep getting him clowned. This time he tries to pull a "gotcha" that two years ago, a single Above the Law article had an unedited slur in a block quote... which is so unhelpful to his argument that you have to wonder if he's suffered a concussion or something. We also talk about Judge Lynn Hughes finding himself the subject of another benchslap and revisit the old Above the Law story that has taken center stage in the Philadelphia DA race.

ABA Journal: Modern Law Library : Are you good in a crisis? There may be a growing practice area for you
When they were putting together their new book, Crisis Lawyering: Effective Legal Advocacy in Emergency Situations, editors Ray Brescia and Eric K. Stern didn't know that the world would soon be gripped by a pandemic–but they knew that being ready for crises large or small could only benefit attorneys. In fact, lawyers who specialize in emergency management and handling crisis situations are more in demand than ever, and it doesn't take a contagious deadly pathogen to need their services. In Crisis Lawyering, Brescia and Stern gathered personal accounts from lawyers who handled everything from Hurricane Katrina recovery, to international kidnappings of journalists, to the Muslim ban and contentious family law cases, all of who make the point that a crisis can pop up in cases large and small. Whether you want to make a career out of handling crisis cases or you want to weather a crisis that's been foist upon you, the authors in the various chapters have tips and tricks learned from their own experiences. In this episode of the Modern Law Library, Brescia and Stern talk about the writing process, their own experience with emergency management in government and the private sector, and delve into the ethical issues the legal profession should be examining as its members are forced to make hard choices in crisis situations. For example, the medical profession has come together to produce standards for triage during mass casualty incidents. Should lawyers hold themselves to a different standard of care in the legal equivalent of a mass casualty incident?

Lunch Hour Legal Marketing : Top 5 Metrics For Your Law Firm
Top headline for #LHLM: More episodes are coming your way! Look for new shows twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesdays. Next up, as Gyi and Conrad predicted, venture capital is making waves in legal. Most recent headlines covered a $100 million infusion for Scorpion, followed soon after by word that Clio raised $110 million. What does the investment mean for firms and matter management? Gyi and Conrad discuss. Speaking of Clio. In the “Clio Legal Trends Report Minute,” Gyi and Conrad explain why some lawyers fared better than others during the pandemic. Hint: Choices of technology for payments, portals, and intake are client-focused. Metrics can be confusing. So Gyi and Conrad ID the metrics they think law firms should care about most. Each shares five metrics that get to the heart of client acquisition. Properly implemented, they explain how these measures improve everything from client intake (just answer the phone) to a client’s lifetime value. And just in case you’re looking for more acronyms, Gyi and Conrad will set you up with UCR, LTV, and IQLMC.
