Law Pod UK Summer Listening

1 August 2019 by

To celebrate reaching 200,000 listens, and in the event that any of our listeners wish to keep their grey matter ticking over during the heatwave/whilst sipping poolside pina coladas, we have prepared a Summer “Greatest Hits” playlist of our most popular episodes of 2019 so far. We hope you enjoy it, and wish all of our listeners a relaxing summer break.

1.     Lord Sumption’s Reith Lectures and Responses (Episode 88, Episode 89)

A veritable powerhouse panel respond to Lord Sumption’s 2019 Reith lectures, as part of the Constitutional and Administrative Bar Association’s summer conference featuring Lord Dyson, Sir Stephen Laws, Professor Vernon Bogdanor, Professor Meg Russell, Lord Falconer and Chaired by Mrs Justice Thornton. This episode is followed by a conversation between Lord Sumption and Lord Justice Singh, responding to the panel. Enjoy! 

2.     Consent and Causation with Robert Kellar QC (Episode 70)

Emma-Louise Fenelon talks to Robert Kellar about consent and causation, discussing the development of the law since Chester v Afshar through to Khan v MNX.

3.     Doctor Knows Best with James Badenoch QC (Episode 60)

James Badenoch QC has spent thirty-five years fighting medical negligence cases. He talks to Rosalind English about the “doctor knows best” rule of evidence, and how that has come under attack in recent years. This episode is best enjoyed as a precursor to John Whitting’s episode on informed consent (below).

4.     Informed Consent with John Whitting QC (Episode 64)

John Whitting QC speaks to Rosalind English about Montgomery, informed consent and his response to James Badenoch QC’s “Doctor Knows Best”

5.     Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Mrs Justice Philippa Whipple QC (Episode 61)

Emma-Louise Fenelon talks to Mrs Justice Whipple about the exceptional life and career of the US Supreme Court Justice, the notorious RBG.

6.     The Prevent Guidance in Universities with Marina Wheeler QC (Episode 75)

Emma-Louise Fenelon talks to Marina Wheeler QC about the recent Court of Appeal decision in Butt v Secretary of State for the Home Department and the operation of the Prevent Guidance generally.

7.     Fleet Street Law Legend with Frances Gibb (Episode 72)

Frances Gibb has retired after nearly forty years as legal journalist and editor, covering everything from Lord Irvine’s pricey wallpaper to the release of the Guildford Four. She talks to Rosalind English about the challenges of reporting on a profession highly sensitive to slips and slights.

8.     M4 Relief Road U-Turn with Alasdair Henderson (Episode 85)

Rosalind English talks to Alasdair Henderson about the Welsh government U-turn on the M4 relief road. Alasdair acted for some of the objectors in the inquiry and regards it as “probably one of the biggest environmental success stores in terms of challenging a major infrastructure project on environmental grounds.

9.    Strikes, verbal abuse and contempt of court – a view from South Africa with Judge Anton Steencamp (Episode 73)

Cape Town employment Judge Anton Steenkamp talks about the challenges of upholding the rule of law in a country where people are plenty and employment is scarce. The tragic death of Judge Steenkamp shortly after this episode was recorded is a great shock to friends and colleagues and an irreparable loss to the South African justice system.

10. Robot Rules with Jacob Turner (Episode 71)

Rosalind English interviews Jacob Turner, barrister and author of a thoroughgoing analysis of the law and its capacity for operating in a world where computers are taking over all the transactions. Is Artificial Intelligence an entirely new legal phenomenon? For those interested in AI, our Episode 40  remains amongst our most popular ever. In that episode Law and Political Science Professor Cary Coglianese from the University of Pennsylvania, and David Lehr, a research affiliate at the Penn Program on Regulation and a student at Yale Law School, join Rosalind English to speculate on how algorithms and artificial intelligence will impact on regulation and adjudication now and in the future
