The Kennedy – Mighell Report
The Kennedy-Mighell Report, a legal technology podcast with an Internet focus, is hosted by Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell, noted legal technology writers, speakers, bloggers and innovators. Whether it’s a practical look at the implications of a brand new technology or a fresh look at how to use existing technologies in better ways, Dennis and Tom discuss the ways lawyers (and others) can use technology to improve their services to clients, do their work more effectively and make their lives easier than ever before. They like to educate their audience, make complex topics seem simple and share their knowledge and enthusiasm about the rapidly-changing world of technology. They see technology as a practical toolbox, enjoy answering audience questions and like to have a little fun along the way, too.
