Legal Speak is a weekly podcast that makes sense of what's happening in the legal industry. Each episode tackles a subject that's worthy of a deep dive—from law firm profit hacks to Supreme Court showdowns to the most promising plays in legal tech. Hosted by Senior Litigation Reporter of the Daily Report Cedra Mayfield and Senior Staff Writer for the American Lawyer Patrick Smith, Legal Speak offers straight talk from experts, plus an inside-the-newsroom perspective on market-shaping stories.

Oct 11, 2019 Supreme Court correspondent Marcia Coyle chats with Mayer Brown partner Nicole Saharsky about the big cases teed up on the Supreme Court's 2019-2020 docket. With a simmering impeachment investigation and a looming presidential election, the court will be taking on issues related to guns, abortion, immigration and LGBT rights. Saharsky, who spent 10 years in the U.S. Solicitor General's Office, talks about the political pressures on the court, which justices she’ll be watching and what she makes of the new guideline giving advocates two minutes to open their argument without interruption. Legal Speak is brought to you by Econ One, offering economic expertise, consulting and dispute resolution, and data analytics.
