ABA podcast to spotlight legal pioneers

The Legal Talk Network and the ABA Journal have launched the ABA Journal: Legal Rebels Podcast to highlight legal pioneers who are remaking the profession by changing the way law is practiced and setting future standards.

Listeners now have access to the show's first three episodes, featuring a new segment of the ABA Journal's Legal Rebels project - Legal Rebels Trailblazers.

The Trailblazers will feature those who innovated and remade aspects of the profession before the Journal launched the popular Legal Rebels project in 2009.

"I'm excited about the extension of our Legal Rebels project into podcasting. Here we can have full and frank conversations with the people who are truly making a mark on the profession, shaking up the status quo," said Allen Pusey, the editor and publisher of the ABA Journal, the flagship magazine of the American Bar Association.

The initiative, which began April 19, marks the latest addition to the list of collaborative shows between the ABA and the national media network.

In October, the ABA Law Student Division launched the ABA Law Student Podcast, joining the ABA's Modern Law Library and Asked and Answered podcasts on the network. With the addition of the Legal Rebels Podcast, there are now four collaborative shows on the network.

"I have always loved the Legal Rebels project and couldn't be happier to continue to foster our growing relationship with the American Bar Association," said Legal Talk Network CEO Adam Camras.

"To help bring the association's initiatives and projects to a broadcast format and reach those lawyers who are consuming content on the go is a no brainer.

"We're looking forward to producing and listening to the profiles of some of the biggest leaders in law."

The podcast adds a third major component to the Legal Rebels Project, which now includes Legal Rebels honorees, featured each September in the ABA Journal and on the Legal Rebels website, and The New Normal column, appearing regularly at Legal Rebels website.
