Welcome to LegalEase, a broadcast about law cast broadly. We are your hosts Lillian and Rachel…. for this April 8, 2016 edition of Legalease.
LegalEase is a monthly show put together by a collective of current and former law students at McGill that explores the law and its institutions with a critical lens and at the same time makes the jargon of the law more accessible.
Coming up in the show today:
- We speak to Will Fitzgibbons, a journalist with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists about the Panama Papers;
- Workers in Texas jails are striking and we speak with the director for the Prison Justice League, Erica Gammill, in Austin, Texas to find out why;
- But first we hear from Leroi Newbold from Black Lives Matter Toronto on the#BLMTOtentcity, or Black City, organizing with #BlackLivesMatterToronto and Freedom Schools.

In today’s show we will hear from past and current students about their involvement in social movement lawyering and how it has shaped their experiences in law school. From Radlaw (Legalease’s original affiliation) to Legalease, students’ perspective on the law and the communities whose lives are affected by it on the daily has been sharpened through engaging with these perspectives, both individually and collectively.

Finally, we have put together extracts of past shows, to illustrate the breadth and diversity of topics covered in the show, and give new recruits an idea of what they are signing-up for!

You have been busy combing through our archives. Thanks! It’s good to see our material is not going to waste. But there are new battles to add to the old; we must continue the fight for justice.
