A primary driver of Lawyer Minds is to connect lawyers from around the country through their ingenuity and ideas.

  • One way we’re tackling this is through written interviews that lawyers can nominate themselves to complete.
    • If you are willing to do a written interview, nominate yourself.
      • If selected, your interview will get published on a specific day and get featured on our site and social media.
    • We’re also launching a series of podcasts and articles from a variety of contributors but are encouraging others to apply.
