Murder or manslaughter? More drunken hi-jinks in this episode, but it seems the previous case of Hyam did not give the definitive definition of what the courts should look for when decided on the common law offence of murder. This case sees the judiciary seeking to clarify and simplify the test for intention when it comes to murder.

Mondeo Law is…

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.
 
Mondeo Law is written and produced by Alex Boardman and Chris Kehoe, and was developed with Ant McGinley (@antmanlovesyou)
