Alex Su

The Mostly Legal Podcast: Season 2, Episode 1 "How a Social Media Star is Disrupting the Legal Industry"

Robert Joyner

The Mostly Legal Podcast is back for season 2 and we’re starting this second go-around off with a bang!

How do you know when it’s time for a career change? Maybe you’re not enjoying the work you’re doing, not happy at your current employer, or perhaps you’re in the wrong industry altogether. Alex Su (Head of Community Development for Ironclad) thinks you’re much more likely to be successful in your career if you focus on doing something that’s aligned with your strengths instead of trying to fix your weaknesses.

A former lawyer now working in legal technology, Su found one of his many strengths was social media, and before he knew it, he had almost 70,000 followers on TikTok watching his jokes about the legal industry. But there’s so much more to him than just some content about paralegals…

Join us for this discussion on what it means to find your own path and be successful, even if it’s not what you initially envisioned.
