Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome back! Today, we’re excited to have attorney and author Lainey Feingold here with us. She is a long-time disability rights lawyer and developed a technique called Structured Negotiation that is the subject of her book, "Structured Negotiation: A Winning Alternative to Lawsuits," which was recently published by the ABA. Structure Negotiation has been used with well-known organizations including major banks, Walmart, the city of San Francisco, and Major League Baseball to address accessibility issues in physical and virtual environments, outside of court.
If you're interested in learning more this new alternative dispute resolution approach or want to craft a non-traditional legal path, tune in.

  • The importance of resilience in a legal career
