It seems every "Comedian" in the country, from Ricky Gervais to some bloke who read a joke in a Xmas cracker has an opinion on free speech this week. 

Sadly, most people feel able to proffer an opinion about the laws of free speech, without referencing them in any meaningful way or understanding the concepts of free speech versus causing offence which European Laws are trying to balance.

In this special episode Alex Boardman (comedian, lawyer) and Chris Kehoe (comedian, Barrister who holds a masters in European Law) discuss the legislation and surrounding case law pertinent to the infamous Count Dankula YouTube case.

A comedic look at some of the most famous criminal cases in English Law with legal expert and barrister Chris Kehoe, and comedian Alex Boardman. In every episode Chris will guide us through a famous area in English Criminal Law. He will explain the facts of the case, set out the legal principles the case raises and offer insight into the reasons behind the verdicts of the judges who presided over them.
 
This easy to understand series is not just for those studying the Law or working in the profession but is for anyone with even a passing interest in legal matters. 
 
As well as detailed case studies, in shorter “Brief Notes” episodes, Chris will tell us what being a barrister is really like, as well as explaining the court system, legal tactics and even answering any questions listeners may have. If you’ve ever enjoyed a legal drama on TV or film, or can’t get enough of novels featuring crime and courtroom battles, then this series will give you a further insight into that world.
