Lisa Leong, Dean Dan Hunter, and Mike Madison take apart the challenges of modern law practice: clients increasingly want multi-functional capabilities from their lawyers and firms. The profession is full of talk of “T-shaped” lawyers, who combine deep legal knowledge and broad business and organizational skills. How can firms find, train, and keep these “T-shaped” professionals happy and productive? How can T-shaped lawyers find success in law firms, or beyond?
Lisa Leong and her business partner Tristan Forrester spent some time hanging out with the delightful Professor Dan Klein from Stanford University.
In this full interview, you will learn:
– how to think like an Improviser and why it is important for cultivating an innovation mindset
– how improv can encourage lawyer creativity
– a few simple improv games like sound ball, and word-at-a-time proverb.

Dean Dan has broken out of our ivory tower and gone to speak with a third party! Mick Sheehy was formerly a GC at Telstra – and is now a Partner of New Law @ PwC. We speak about CLOC, Legal Operations, and Tech Platforms. If you don’t know what any of these terms mean…listen up!
Our three brave co-hosts go “on tape” to predict what the legal industry will look like in 2028 (ten years from now). Dean Dan, Lethal Lisa and Most Interesting Mike cover law firms, lawyers and law schools. Nothing is safe. Platform plays and multi-disciplinary practices are also covered.
