The Secret Lawyers: Leveraging the Law in Creative Ways

Vol. 39 No. 6


Leslie A. Gordon is a secret lawyer who has been working as a freelance legal affairs journalist for more than 10 years.

They lurk in sometimes surprising places: boardrooms, sports arenas, even artist studios. You can’t spot them with eyes alone—you have to get to know them first. Soon, you’ll discover their expert communication skills, creativity, willingness to work hard, and problem-solving prowess—and that will be the tell. We’re talking, of course, about secret lawyers, those lawyers who have migrated to other professions. Student Lawyer will be highlighting secret lawyers in a new regular feature. For this, the inaugural article, we’ve profiled Elizabeth Scott, vice president at Major League Baseball Productions; woodworker David Burling; and Joanna Geraghty, JetBlue’s chief people officer.
