Studying law is a complicated and demanding subject and sometimes you need a little time away from the books and an opportunity to listen to something entertaining. Well, what if we told you there was a way you could do that and still learn about your chosen subject?
The good news is that there is a range of great legal podcasts out there for aspiring legal assistants that are both entertaining and informative, and we’ve collected together some of the best.
Coming on the scene with a bang in 2014, Serial is an investigative journalism podcast hosted by Sarah Koenig, narrating a nonfiction story over multiple episodes.
The first season of Serial covered the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee, the second season concentrated on the case of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, an American Army soldier who was held for five years by the Taliban and then charged with desertion, and the third looked at cases within the Justice Center Complex in the Cleveland area.
Serial is engaging, entertaining, fascinating and full sudden twists and turns. Well worth a listen.
In 2007, Melanie McGuire was convicted of murdering her husband in what media called the “Suitcase Murder.”
The hosts of Direct Appeal, Meghan Sacks and Amy Shlosberg, are experts in criminology and the focus of this podcast is dissecting this fascinating case and looking at how McGuire was convicted of the murder of her husband based solely on circumstantial evidence.
Described as “by lawyers for lawyers” the Lawyer 2 Lawyer podcast involves host J. Craig Williams interviewing guest experts and discussing the latest news and advancements in the legal field. A “must listen” for any student of the law.
Most legal podcasts are fronted by lawyers or those for whom the law, or particular cases are a fascination or a hobby. If you are looking for a legal podcast with some serious weight and experience behind it, then you can’t get much better than Stay Tuned with Preet hosted by Preet Bharara, former U.S. attorney general.
Bharara covers a huge range of topics, from border security to the opioid crisis and brings his experience at the highest levels of the US legal system to bear on these issues.
