Episode 7 - Back at It Again
This Week at Law School I had to get back into the swing of things after the placement break. I struggle with a difficult concept in my contracts class. I got to watch the Armed Forces Court of Appeals hold court at the law school. Also this week, I interviewed the brilliant Jameson Gardner who already has a PhD in something that I don't know anything about and is looking like he will probably destroy law school as well. Finally, I am including a special musical number from my property class this week with the permission of Professor Fee who performed this while playing the dobro and accompanied by one of our classmates, Kate Raynor, to help reinforce some of the legal concepts we have been learning about. Thank you all so much for your support of the show. I have been so grateful to those of you who are listening and giving great feedback on this. I hope you enjoy this episode of This Week at Law School.

And I spent some amazing time volunteering at the annual Law and Religion Symposium that BYU Law puts on. I got to shake hands with delegates from around the world and make awkward, stuttering small talk. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, then come and check it out! As always, I am very grateful to those of you who are listening to the show and sharing it around. Thank you so much. It has been a lot of fun making these. Have a great week!

Episode 4 - An Evening With Justice Gorsuch
This Week at Law School, I shamelessly name drop one of the most powerful people in the world because I was recently in the same room as him and that gives me the right. I also interview the amazing Amie Ericksen, catch up with an old friend from Scotland, attend the BYU Graduate Studies fair, and try my hardest to explain some of the finer points of property law. The case for this week is one of my favorites, Leonard v Pepsi Co I hope you enjoy the show. Thanks for listening!
