The GULL invited Michel Jaccard[¹], a lawyer based in Geneva, to give a
talk[²] a few months ago. He did seem to have quite some experience with
open-source licenses.

I wouldn't have thought someone would be able to give a talk about license
and IP issues in a room full of technical people without being boring. He
literally captivated the attention during 2 hours non-stop, with only a
dozen slides !
