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.
