The Actus Reaus of the offence of Perjury is explored in an interesting case. Also, we discuss the different types of barristers, what do people who aren't religious swear on in court instead of the holy bible, are harsher sentences really a deterrent and just how much does a barrister's wig cost?

Duration:00:28:43

R v Dadson (1850)

2/7/2022
A wooded copse, a policeman with a gun lying in wait for a repeat offender... sounds like a Scandi crime drama, but actually it's a case from Victorian England. Also; Actus Reus and the overlap into Mens Rea. What are Assizes? What are summary and indictable offences and what exactly is a felony? And in a world exclusive, we examine the question on everyone's lips, what is an Ox Bow Lake and how are they formed?

Freedom Day/ Mistaken Identity/ Sexual Offences Act 2003

7/19/2021
Freedom isn't free, it costs folks like you and me... So sang Trey Parker in 2004 in one of the funniest films ever made; Team America World Police. This episode is a little bit funny but nowehere near as good as that. Chris Kehoe almost wasn't free either, as in court, a lay magistrate thought that he was - well, I'll let him tell you, it's a great story.

Duration:00:47:05

DPP v Ziegler

7/1/2021
An interesting case from February wherein Ziegler (and others) and the DPP go all the way to the Supreme Court to see if Human Rights include the right to block the highway. The case gives a clear framework under Articles 10 and 11 of the Convention and lays out which test should be used to judge these cases. In light of the proposed Policing Bill, the case is very interesting indeed. Also, a birthday problem, Enger-land at the Euros and casual racism against the Swiss.

Duration:01:02:08
