    SB 8, Its Impact, and the Future of Roe v. Wade

    SB 8, Its Impact, and the Future of Roe v. Wade

    Back in May of this year, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law Texas Senate Bill 8, better known as SB 8, one of the most restrictive abortion bills in the nation. SB 8 went into effect on September 1st, 2021, after the US Supreme Court refused to strike it down. Since then, the constitutionality of SB 8 has come into question, and the potential threat to the constitutional rights of women and other persons has taken center stage. 
    On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by Dean Kimberly Mutcherson from Rutgers Law School as they take a look at Texas' abortion law, SB 8. Craig & Dean Mutcherson discuss the impact of the law, the legal, ethical, and bioethical concerns stemming from SB 8, its constitutionality, and what it means for the future of Roe v. Wade.

    Masks in our Schools: Controversy, Litigation & Politics

    Masks in our Schools: Controversy, Litigation & Politics

    As students across the country return to classrooms, the controversy surrounding masks has reached a fever pitch. In at least 14 states, lawsuits have been filed either for or against masks in schools. This has led to protests, litigation, and even violence. Just this week, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights launched investigations into five states that have banned mask mandates in schools, alleging that the governors are violating the civil rights of students with disabilities.
    On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by professor Ellen Wright Clayton, JD, MD. Together, they take a look at the mask controversy in schools and communities across the United States. The conversation focuses on mask mandates, public health law, parental freedom, and litigation surrounding these issues.

    Sexual Harassment & Politics

    Sexual Harassment & Politics

    Sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct has become all too familiar of a story in modern day politics. High profile allegations of sexual misconduct have straddled political lines. Just in recent memory, high profile accusations have been leveled at Al Franken, Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump, Roy Moore, Joe Biden, and Matt Gaetz. And, most recently, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced he will step down effective August 24th after multiple women came forward alleging sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior by the governor. He has denied all allegations.
    So why do these misconduct allegations against high power political figures impact some but not others? And what can we do as a society to eliminate this behavior? On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by professor Rebecca Ortiz, PhD, as they take a look at sexual harassment and the resignation of Governor Cuomo. Craig and Rebecca will discuss sexual harassment in politics, holding perpetrators accountable over these claims, and what is being done to combat sexual misconduct.

    The January 6th Select Committee, the Hearings, and Subpoenas

    The January 6th Select Committee, the Hearings, and Subpoenas

    After failing to form a bipartisan committee to investigate the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol Complex, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi instead formed a select committee. However, accusations of partisanship have been leveled at the committee, particularly after Pelosi eliminated House Minority Leader McCarthy's offered committee members - representatives Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio.
    Last week, police officers from the U.S. Capitol Police and Washington, D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department appeared before the committee, giving their accounts of what happened that day. Since the hearings have started, the subject of subpoenas has come up, particularly for those who spoke with former President Trump that day. Representative Adam Kinzinger, one of the Republican committee members, indicated that this committee would use its subpoena power stating “I would expect to see a significant amount of subpoenas.”
    So will this select committee use their subpoena power? And how difficult will it be to get members of Congress, and maybe even the former president to testify before the panel? On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by professor David A. Super from Georgetown Law, as they take a look at the creation of the House select committee and the investigation of January 6th. Craig and David discuss the hearings, the possibility of using subpoenas, and where this is all headed.

Serious, substantive discussion of legal topics in the news

This is meat & potatoes. Topics are driven by the news cycle, but the discussion focuses on legal analysis instead of politics or the horse race. Come prepared and you won't be disappointed.

Leftist Tripe

What did you expect? Lawyers in this day and age are an intellectual embarrassment. This program is no exception. Morons marching to socialism - I don’t a single guest could pass a calculus test. Intellectual deadwood in leftist lockstep - don’t waste your time.
