BAR PRESIDENT GREG COLEMAN sat down with the Legal Talk Network’s Adriana Linares at the Winter Meeting to discuss the new Practice Resource Institute, upcoming events, and member benefits on the podcast. “Through PRI and the podcast we are continuing to find new, effective ways to educate and engage with our members,” Coleman said. “I hope every member of the Bar becomes a regular listener. It’s going to be a great way to keep on top of what is happening in legal technology and practice management.”

During the recent 2015 Florida Bar Winter Meeting, The Florida Bar’s Practice Resource Institute (PRI) and Legal Talk Network officially launched The Florida Bar Podcast.
