The Legal Landcape of the Murdoch Phone Hacking Scandal

Explaining these issues is currently beyond the ken of this blog. But not for the folks on the Lawyer2Lawyer Podcast on the Legal Talk Network.

I have discussed the benefits of podcasts for attorneys here and here over at the Practice and Productivity Blog, and Lswyer2Lawyer is an excellent example.

This podcast episode features Mike Koehler, Assistant Professor of Business Law at Butler University and Jane E. Kirtley, the Silha Professor of Media Ethics and Law at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. Along with co-host, Bob Ambrogi, these professors discuss "the legal issues including charges, privacy rights, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the scandal’s impact on journalism and the fate of the Murdoch news empire."

Worth a listen, as are many of the podcast epidodes these folks do.
