    Mutual Combat

    Mutual Combat

    Ann and Dan talk about mutual combat laws in the US. When Kwame Brown challenged Stephen A. Smith to meet him in a mutual combat state (Washington) where it's legal to engage in combat as long as both parties agree, Dan became interested in the subject. 

    There are only a few places in the US where mutual combat isn't illegal. Both parties are somewhat protected from criminal liability but not necessarily civil liability.

    Life Lessons

    Life Lessons

    Ann, Becky, and Dan have a conversation about some of the things that weren't taught to them when they were younger. We learned a lot on our own through trial and error or later in life from unlikely sources. No one taught us about certain things like financial literacy, sex, how to prepare for job interviews, professional etiquette, dating, and other useful life lessons/skills.

    Is Being a Lawyer Lucrative?

    Is Being a Lawyer Lucrative?

    Ann, Becky, and Dan discuss whether it's financially lucrative to become a lawyer in 2021. We review the average salaries of attorneys in the United States, as listed by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. We also talk about going back to the old apprenticeship model of vocational training, especially with the rising cost of tuition. Dan goes left field, as usual, with a mini-rant about Baby Boomers.

    Law Firm Hierarchy

    Law Firm Hierarchy

    This week Ann, Becky, and Dan discuss the structure of what we'd consider a typical law firm. Ann explains the hierarchy of a firm from managing partners down to summer associates. Ann also explains how lawyers can't partner with non-lawyers to create a law firm. We also debate whether it's more difficult for Black women to succeed in law versus other occupational fields.

    Evidence Destroyed by an Act of God

    Evidence Destroyed by an Act of God

    Ann, Becky, and Dan talk about how after Hurricane Katrina, a lot of evidence linked to criminal cases was lost or destroyed. Ann talks about what can happen if evidence is lost, especially exculpatory evidence. The entire criminal justice system in New Orleans was already in a failed state prior to Hurricane Katrina, which in-turn dealt a death blow. We somehow wander down the road of the sexual offender registry and whether or not we agree with everything that can land you on the list (like pissing outdoors), before getting back on track.
