Podcast – Without Prejudice

In a Without Prejudice ’special’ Charon QC talks with Carl Gardner about a range of important topical issues:

  • The recent speech by the Attorney-General Dominic Grieve on Human Rights, The European Court of Justice and the principle of subsidiarity
  • The impact of the Assange judgment on European Arrest Warrants
  • Lord Chancellor Ken Clarke’s new sentencing proposals on mandatory life sentences and knife crime
  • The Brodie Clark v Home Secretary spat:  In particular we consider the potential problem of Absolute Parliamentary Privilege being invoked on Theresa May’s statements in Parliament and the potential for an unfair trial should it be an issue.
  • Legal Aid cuts and the rise in DIY lawyers
