Law in a Podcast Nutshell
Law professors at San Diego's California Western School of Law are taking their expertise from the classroom to the iPod. They have launched Law in 10, a weekly podcast providing legal analysis on current news topics, all in 10 minutes or less.
The podcasts generally include two segments, each featuring a different legal expert and topic of interest. Since the podcast's launch Aug. 24, programs have looked at evidence issues in the JonBenet Ramsey case, generation gaps in the legal workplace, legal aspects of polygamy and the legality of the president's military commissions, among other topics.
While other law schools have used podcasts for lectures and speaker events, says David Bowers, assistant dean for external affairs at the law school, he believes California Western is the first to offer a weekly news program. He adds:
"Our purpose in launching this effort is to introduce our faculty members to 'Gen iPod,' the 19-24 year old college student with an interest in legal issues. We believe others will develop an interest as well."
