Episodes 6 & 7: Josh’s Advice for Those Starting Out
By Ronald J. Coleman
Our sixth and seventh episodes—focused on “The Future of Compliance and Legal with a Digital Lens”—feature guest speakers Josh Hogue, Andreas Pyrcek, and Dr. Annie Green. I asked our guests if “a student or someone more junior would like to do what you do or get into your area, what advice would you give them?” Josh said:
“Looking back when I went through law school, I didn’t really ever think I would end up in this career or this industry. I’m one that that likes new, innovative, to kind of focus in areas that are maybe on the edge, and years ago it was. Things have changed today. But, I think, looking at other disciplines, if you’re especially a law student right now, understanding business. I think that’s one thing that I’ve picked up and learned is having a good business mind because a lot of what we do is really around, is business principles, but it’s in the realm of legal and compliance. And, in technology, not to be afraid of technology, back to what we talked about earlier. Any opportunity to understand kind of the state of the union and where things are, from a technology perspective, as you’re going through what you might think of as a traditional legal path or legal career. It’s being open minded to learn those other disciplines because that’ll drive you into this area.”
