Successful attorneys are busy people, and it’s not always easy staying up to date with the latest legal happenings. Doing so used to mean spending hours reading industry periodicals and attending conferences—hours that aren’t always easy to find.

Podcasting has changed all that. Now you can learn from experts in the field on your daily commute, while running on a treadmill, in the garden—anywhere. Lawyers who listen to podcasts are better informed about new laws, amendments to existing laws, tips to help retain and attract new clients and new tools that can help them manage their firm and increase profitability.

Without further ado, here are 13 of the best damn legal podcasts available today:
