Disco-Loving Lawyer-Coder: A Conversation with Rob MacAdam, Director of Legal Solutions at High Q

In this episode, I chat with Rob Macadam, Director of Legal Solutions for High Q and recovering M&A lawyer. We discuss what it takes to leave the law (a little bravery and a lot of chutzpah!) [@:17], his favorite kind of beer (“real ale”) [@:41], and how you, too, can become a "legal geek" and break into the fast-growing legal tech field [@:35]. Along the way, Rob and I compare notes on what it's like to practice in the U.S. versus the U.K. (although he's never worn a wig!) [@:23].

You can follow Rob on Twitter here; find out more about Richard Susskind, whose eye-opening book, Tomorrow's Lawyers, Rob mentions on the show, here; and read more about legal tech associations and conferences here and here.
