Gary Goodwin takes a whimsical look at the serious, not so serious, and sometimes completely random issues facing the law profession today. He is in-house counsel for a conservation organization, and since he would like to keep it that way, all expressed opinions are strictly his own. He appears to collect degrees as a hobby and has a BSc from Victoria majoring in Marine Biology. In addition to his law degree and MBA, he recently completed his LLM from London England emphasizing natural resources and international economic regulation. Really. He can be followed on Twitter at @GaryWGoodwin
