Law vs Life

Law vs Life is a DOME podcast where we talk about topics that are at the intersection of law and life. This is neither a technical nor a political programme. Hell, most of the time, it is barely a legal one. It is for anyone and everyone interested in the gaps between the court and the practice of law and the court of public opinion. So join us and weigh in while we argue the case Law vs Life. New episode every Wednesday!!

In our first episode, we explore the legal concept of settlement taking as a case study the case Virginia Giuffre vs Prince Andrew, Duke of York. We try to understand why the public at large still views Prince Andrew as a perpetrator.

episode 2: The Chicken or the Egg?


In our second episode, we explore the concept of changes in the law, taking as a case study the reversal of the case Roe vs Wade. We look into the reaction of the society and wonder if the court of law and the court of public opinion can see eye to eye on these types of hot button issues.

episode 3: Where do we draw the line?


In today's episode, we are talking tennis, basketball... and the right to work. The audio seems to have had a minor trouble. We truly apologise for it. We may record it again at some point during the week to have a clean, crisp audio but as we really wanted to honour our committment of posting every wednesday, this will have to do for at least a couple of days. It is around minute 14 for a minute or so. Again our most sincere apologies, this will be rectified as soon as possible...

episode 4: Do We Have a Case (part 1)?


Today's episode is a really fun one (at least to us)! It is a mock. You become a lawyer specialised in international law who represents a client who wants to challenge the FINA policy in place since June 2022. Your client is a transgender swimmer. If you like this episode we can absolutely do the same but this time you would be a counsel for the institutions sued. We hope you will enjoy this episode, next week, we will be back to the usual structure of our episodes!!

episode 5: So, Who calls the shot?


In today's episode, we are exploring (emphasis on exploring...) the notions of State both in constitutional with a focus on the system of parliamentary monarchy, and in international law, taking as a case study the United Kingdom, one of the most fascinating State there is, legally speaking.  It is not boring, we promise. We talk about empires, Queen Elizabeth II, Mauritius and so much more!!

episode 6: Can I speak my mind?


This had to happen! In today's episode, we are talking Freedom of expression. There have been so many developments in the past weeks that we finally gave in and looked into it. From the Depp vs Heard case to the Free speech Union debacle, a lot transpired. We try to to look into it all from a legal point of view, as always without passion and trying to understand the why of all of this.

We promise it is way for fun than what it seems!!
