Unique and cool

Interesting research projects are discussed, but the podcast could use some editing to reduce the rambles. Please bring in scholars whose research is more doctrinal so that students can engage with the podcast too.

Stimulating, accessible, humorous

Joe and Christian have shown me just how fun law can be. Law school has been something I’ve seriously contemplated, but after hearing these two go back and forth with their wonderful guests I went ahead and bought an LSAT textbook. They show that law is fun and dynamic, not dry and rigid. The day this show stops will be a sad day indeed

corpus linguistics

Never heard of this before. Like in ask President Bill Clinton, when he will be in ANP and he says it depends what you mean is is.
Now for another example is like your language you use in the government. Quite confusing and that you really look at what they’re really saying and read between the lines.
For another example, look at FinePrint the privacy laws like on Facebook. None of us read it because we don’t understand it.
