Legal Current
Legal Current is a podcast from Thomson Reuters, Legal, that features information and commentary on the business and practice of law.

There’s no such thing as a typical day for someone who runs knowledge management for a law firm, in the same way that there’s no such thing as a typical KM setup, or even a typical person who manages KM for a firm.

The person in charge of KM can be anyone from a law librarian to a chief knowledge officer to a practice group leader, a IT manager, or even someone who does a little bit of all those things.

Welcome to KM with Kim, where we share best practices and the latest in getting the most from your knowledge management systems with Kim Stein, national manager for knowledge management for Thomson Reuters.

In this episode, Kim takes a look at “A Day in the Life of KM,” through the eyes of  David Hobbie, Litigation Knowledge Management Attorney at Goodwin Procter, LLP in Boston. at Goodwin Proctor.

David talk about how his firm uses KM, and he manages his role to make the firm more efficient and productive through its use of KM.

On Jan. 26, 1997, many homes across America were tuned-in to Super Bowl XXXI. While much of the game itself may be a blur, most people who watched that night likely remember one image from that night: Hollywood legend Fred Astaire, who had died nearly a decade before, dancing with an electric broom in a vacuum commercial. While many people were fixated on how the ad was created, some – including members of Astaire’s family – took issue with bringing the legendary performer “back from the dead.”

Now 20 years later, a new film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, puts a new spin on the debate in part because, unlike the brief appearance of Astaire in the vacuum ad, the new Star Wars film demonstrates that actors, can quite literally, return to the screen forever.

But what are legal ramifications to these posthumous performances, and how are today’s actors prepping for this future?

Join us for the latest Legal Current podcast, where we are joined by Brad Cohen, partner with Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell in Los Angeles, where we break this down.

And be warned… there will be spoilers.
