5 Podcasts to Enrich Your Legal Practice

If you practice for long enough, say, more than a few days, the novelty wears off and you may need some enrichment while working. After all, sometimes you need something to listen to while zoning out and hammering out your pleading. Some folks want lyrics-free classical or jazz music, while others need the hubbub of a cafe, or that oh-so-awful, somniferous, monotone drone of talk radio.

For that last group, the world has changed thanks to podcasts. With the sheer volume of podcasts being created today (who would've thunk that people like talking, and others like listening), if you like talk radio and haven't gotten into podcasts, you're missing out.

Below, you'll find a list of five podcasts for lawyers that might help you stay up to date, or stay up late, or at very least, keep you entertained while commuting.

Supreme Podcast

Keeping up on SCOTUS decision is an important part of life for just about any lawyer that wants to be able to carry on at networking events and among colleagues. If you got some time, the Supreme Podcast can help you be supremely in the know.

Thinking Like a Lawyer

Part of the Legal Talk Network, Thinking Like a Lawyer is a podcast about gardening, in case the name didn't tip you off. Actually, it's the podcast of Joe Patrice and Elie Mystal, two prominent legal bloggers from one of our favorite snarky legal news blogs, Above the Law.

The Lawyerist Podcast

If you like reading Lawyerist, then you might want to check out the Lawyerist podcast. It's basically a talk show focused on the legal industry of today and tomorrow, with the same level of great content that you'd expect from Lawyerist.

Bloomberg Law

If you're more focused on the news side of legal world, the Bloomberg Law podcast provides short segments to help you learn about what's going on.

The Modern Law Library

The ABA Journal produces a regular podcast on various legal topics of national interest, and sometimes the legal angle is only tangential.
