Posted July 16th, 2008 in dispute resolution, podcasts by sally

“Today I am talking to barrister, Andrew Goodman. Andrew, of 1 Chancery Lane, is the Convener of the Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates (SCMA)

We look at mediation advocacy and the work of the Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates:
How does the role of the advocate fit in the current mediation market? – Is representation in mediation really necessary – doesn ‘t it undermine the idea of party autonomy? – Can mediation representation properly be called ‘advocacy’? – What is the SCMA and how did it come into being? – What is your role / How many members does it have/ What activities does it conduct/ who is involved with it?”

IN THE CAUSE
R v Davies (Appellant) (On appeal from the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division))

I quote from the speech of Lord Bingham, the senior law lord at paragraph 5 : ‘It is a long-established principle of the English common law that, subject to certain exceptions and statutory qualifications, the defendant in a criminal trial should be confronted by his accusers in order that he may cross-examine them and challenge their evidence.’

Today I am talking to Andrew Keogh, a barrister, published author and author of the White Rabbit blog about the case and the proposed anonymity legislation”

Podcast 64: With John Hirst – author of Jailhouse Lawyer’s blog and Podcast 65: The right of prisoners to vote with Carl Gardner – Charon QC

Posted July 7th, 2008 in elections, islamic law, podcasts, prisons by sally

“Today I am talking to John Hirst, author of the Jailhouse Lawyer’s blog. John has spent 35 of his 57 years in prison.

John was sent to prison for life after being convicted of the manslaughter of his landlady, in 1979. ‘He received a tariff of 15 years, but served a total of 25 before being released in October last year. He believes his activities as a litigant against the Prison Service and Home Office are the main reason he had to serve the extra years. John proved to be the most prolific prisoner litigant of modern times – and, he says, like Perry Mason and Rumpole of the Bailey, he never lost a case against the Prison Service.’ ”

Listen to Podcast 64: With John Hirst – author of Jailhouse Lawyer’s blog

“Today I am talking to Carl Gardner, author of the Head of Legal blog, barrister, former government lawyer and commentator on Human Rights Law, about the case of Hirst v United Kingdom No (2) heard at the ECHR in 2005.

Yesterday, I did a podcast with John Hirst, author of the Jailhouse Lawyer blog about his experience of prison life and during that conversation we talked about John’s case against the British government about the right of prisoners to vote – which he won.

Carl Gardner analyses the Hirst case and we talk about the practical implications of the judgment. We also talk about Lord Phillip’s attitude to Sharia Law and his support for Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury.”
