Customer ReviewsSee All
Highly educational and interesting to this non-law-educated Canadian who still struggles with the fact the while world seems to be leaning to he right yet this is my dose of hope from the legal perspective. Not so serious i don't also enjoy a good laugh, but number one informative with good breakdown expectations of each case/situation.
I actually feel smart now
I found this podcast through Jaclyn Friedman’s summer hiatus... and I actually feel like I understand law now.
