Thinking Like a Lawyer - Above the Law

About

Thinking Like A Lawyer is a podcast featuring Above the Law’s Joe Patrice and Kathryn Rubino. Each episode, the hosts will take a topic experienced and enjoyed by regular people, and shine it through the prism of a legal framework. This will either reveal an awesome rainbow of thought, or a disorienting kaleidoscope of issues. Either way, it should be fun.
