Back in November, I wrote here about the end of our Lawyer2Lawyer podcast and the closing down of our host, the Legal Talk Network. (Lawyer2Lawyer: The Final Podcast). Today, there is good news to report. The Legal Talk Network will continue, thanks to its acquisition by Lawgical. The following announcement was made today:
