Prima Facie a podcast about law, order, and legal issues.
About This Show
Prima Facie is a fortnightly law & order podcast, hosted by an actual real life ex Victoria Police officer and an actual real life lawyer.
Both hosts are incredibly witty, handsome, charming and very, very modest, or maybe not but they do know a lot about the law, a lot. Ron was an actual detective in the Victoria Police Force and David wasn't, but has always wanted to be but has to settle with the fact that he is a lawyer admitted to practice in the state of Victoria.
Since we both come from different law "worlds" discussion is often (maybe almost always) fiery, and whatever you do, don't mention Uber...

David and Ron discuss tangible and intangible property, intellectual property, theft, and what criminal offences may or may not have been committed against HBO.
And we’ve all had our time wasted by door-to-door sales people. We talk about criminal trespass, public places and private property. Can your right to be in a public place ever be revoked?
