Hearsay The Legal Podcast combines an interview-format podcast with e-learning multimedia content to enable lawyers to obtain their CPD points in a more convenient and flexible way (i.e. they can listen to the podcast anywhere, anytime). Although Hearsay is a paid service for lawyers, it is FREE for law students.
Law students can sign up for free by uploading a copy of their student card - it takes around 1 minute to sign-up.
We have an impressive array of speakers including:
The Hon Justice Lucy McCallum, Episode 1 - The View from the Bench - Tips for Aspiring Advocates;
OH&S mastermind & Managing Partner of Clyde & Co Michael Tooma, Episode 2 - WHS - What about Mental Health?;
former High Court justice The Hon Michael Kirby, Episode 29 - The Moment of Decision: How Judges Judge;

In addition to the above, there are many specialised lawyers (both in private practice and in-house), barristers, consultants and academics. The topics range from discussions on animal law, insolvency law, advocacy tips, succession law, tax law, as well as discussion around catfishing and trolling.
