Podcast Description

Returning very soon (autumn 2015) after a 12 month break.

NorthPod Law is a podcast that reviews the week’s legal stories and news with a particular focus on how they affect the legal profession and the justice system of England & Wales. This show runs for six weeks and then takes a six week break throughout the year. It is hosted by barristers Benjamin Knight, Kirstin Beswick and Jonathan Holt. Each week, they will be joined by other lawyers and legal experts and, together, they will cast an eye over that week’s legal twists and turns.

Far too often the media don’t get the facts right about criminal cases meaning that far too often do the public not understand the ‘how’ and ‘why’. This show trying to change that by discussing current cases and topics in everyday English, to make the law more accessible to all.
