Attorneys Jessica Mederson and Joshua Gilliland write the popular attorney/geek blog “The Legal Geeks,” that includes their vlog and podcasts. The Legal Geeks have played lawyer on everything from Star Trek, Doctor Who, Dune, Star Wars and anything else “geek.” “The Legal Geeks” was selected for the American Bar Association Top 100 Law Blogs in 2013 and won the popular vote in the “For Fun” category, unseating a two-time winner. The ABA Journal said The Legal Geeks were possibly the nation’s leading legal expert on John Cusack.
“The Legal Geeks” have had guests appear on vlogs and podcasts, including Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal & New York State Judge Matthew Sciarrino; Olivia Younger on baking tortes and understanding torts; Leslie Crystal on the 2013 Geekie Awards and even a youth pastor to explore the confession issues from The Time of the Doctor. Many attorneys and legal technology specialists have joined The Legal Geeks to discuss technology in the practice of law and their favorite comic books or science fiction.
It is not every day you hear judges talk about Doctor Who, the Twilight Zone or the impact of science fiction on their lives. Check out The Legal Geeks podcasts to learn about the employee safety issues in Jabba the Hutt’s Palace or the partnership formation issues in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
