Episode Notes

Fastcase founder Ed Walters goes introspective about sapere vedere on this Special Report with Joe Patrice and Elie Mystal. Simply put, sapere vedere means learning to see. In it, Ed recalls the lessons learned from his high school art teacher and applies them to legal practice. Attorneys should remember the viewpoint of others when they communicate or work. What’s meaningful to the client is often very different from what the lawyer believes. By learning to see the perspective of others, advocates will enhance the value of the services they provide.

Ed Walters is the CEO and co-founder of Fastcase, an online legal research software company based in Washington, D.C.

He has written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The University of Chicago Law Review, The Green Bag, and Legal Times, and has spoken extensively on legal publishing around the country. He is an adjunct professor at the Georgetown University Law Center where he teaches The Law of Robots.
