The Design Driven Life

This week on the Design Driven Life, Wendy Yates speaks with David Johnson.

He is a lawyer, writer and professor. He teaches  Advanced Negotiation at Stanford Law School, and Design Thinking  at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford. Across the last  20 years he has also practiced law in Silicon Valley, primarily as  General Counsel for tech companies and, most recently,  a non-profit foundation.

He has testified before Congress and the California Assembly on law  and technology issues. He has conducted dozens of trials and  appeals, including two state Supreme Court arguments. His client list  included some of the biggest names in science and technology:  Apple, Caliper, Google, McKesson, Sankyo Pharma, and The  Computer History Museum.

In 2007 David completed a JSM in Law, Science and Technology. His  thesis explored design methods for software and their potential  application to systemic environmental issues. In 2014, David wrote,  produced and delivered the world’s first free online course on  Negotiation to some 5,000 students in 47 nations. General Electric  thereafter licensed the course for a four-year run in their executive  education program, “Brilliant U.”
