McGill Law’s Radio show LEGALEASE on CKUT 90.3 FM is available online now! Unlimited quantity. Here is a look at some of the trouble we’ve been stirring up this summer. We are a collective of law students at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
1. EPISODE 1: Wrath (July 10, 2009) –
This week we first look at the situation in Iran post the 2009 elections and popular protests. In the second portion we read law into J. Steinbeck’s novel The Grapes of Wrath.
2. EPISODE 2: Judges and Improv (July 31, 2009) –
Here we consider the following question: is the Judge an improvisatory virtuoso?
In our first half, LEGALEASE takes a look at the recent conference ‘Lex Non Scripta, Ars Non Scripta: Law, Justice and Improvisation’ which took place at the Sala Rossa on June 19th and 20th, 2009, featuring an address by Jonathan Neufeld, an assitant professor of philosophy at Vanderbilt University.
In the second half of the program we speak with Venezuelan Supreme Court Justice Fernando Vegas Torrealba on being a revolutionary lawyer, the 1999 Constitution, and other fun topics (i.e. socialism). http://www.tsj.gov.ve/eltribunal/magistrados/fernandovegas.shtml
