logointvwFINAL-300x300We’ve got a great episode this month! Our interview segment features Owen Nee, the first person to open a Western law firm in China. Owen describes the legal landscape in China and how it compares to that in the US. He also tells us about his career, which is made up of many “firsts.”

In our “In the News,” segment we feature a recent news headline from Thomson Reuters News & Insight about a controversial trend that has US law enforcement agencies searching Facebook accounts without the users’ consent.

We also have our regular features, including “On the Blawgs” which features a post from Above the Law blog on how corporations can pave career paths for their in-house lawyers. And in “Chaos in the Courts” we have a story about a man trying to split California, making the 51ststate.

You can listen to the episode now by clicking the Play button on the built-in player below, or listen later.

We’re also on iTunes (just enter “Legal Current” in the search box).
