Editor’s Picks: Legal Trends for Solos | BigLaw Bonuses | Lead Magnets | ‘Watergate Girl’ Dishes

Clio broke new ground five years ago by turning its internal data outward and sharing what it was learning about the legal profession.

The Legal Trends Report quickly gained prominence in the industry data space at a time when lawyers were hungry for information and insights about the legal market.

The reports have expanded in scope and detail. And during the pandemic were released more frequently. Now Clio is back with targeted insights for solo practice.

On Digital Edge, Clio CEO Jack Newton shares highlights from the latest report, Legal Trends for Solo Law Firms

Newton discusses insights from Clio’s solo survey, how firms and clients conducted legal business during the pandemic, and what gave firms a competitive edge.

Why Lead Gen Isn’t a Winning Strategy

Back to competitive advantages, especially in the solo and small firm sector, the Un-Billable Hour explores why firms would be better served to focus less on lead generation and more on improving client acquisition.

Books for Lawyers, a Legal History Edition

On the Modern Law Library, host Lee Rawles interviews Jill Wine-Banks, who at 30  became an assistant Watergate special prosecutor investigating President Richard M. Nixon and later the first female general counsel of the U.S. Army.

In her memoir, “The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against a Criminal President,” Wine-Banks details the political obstruction, legal wrangling, and sexism she experienced.

The two also chat about whether we will see her candid story on the big screen since the memoir was optioned by the production company owned by actress Katie Holmes.
