The Most Listened-To Legal Talk Network Podcasts of 2016


Wow, has 2016 been a big year for Legal Talk Network. We launched four new shows, recorded interviews at eight legal conferences, took one trip with our entire staff (to ABA TECHSHOW), and consumed 1,846 cups of coffee (a rough estimate). Through all this excitement, we’ve continued to publish our monthly and bi-weekly podcasts and more legal professionals than ever are listening!

If you’re a new listener or an long-time fan who is looking for new podcasts, take a look at what others favored over the past year. You might just find an entirely new show that teaches you about legal news, offers tips on improving your practice, or just makes you laugh.
