CASE IN POINT | Las Vegas Shooting, Gun Rights Change - Good Law | Bad Law

After the tragedy that was the mass shooting in Las Vegas last week we saw an outcry for gun reform. People calling for gun bans, buy-back programs, and stricter regulations. On the other side, we saw people saying it was too soon and emotions were to high to begin this discussion.

 

We saw late night hosts like Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel calling for change. In tears because of the immense weight of the event.

 

No matter what your stance is, we can all agree events like this shouldn’t happen.

 

The problem is, change doesn’t come from a single speech. Change doesn’t come from one or two late night hosts calling for it. Change comes from people like you, like us, stepping up and using our voices. Electing the people that will make the changes we believe in. Writing our congressmen and women; asking them to propose the changes we want to see.

Change comes when we, the people, make our voices heard.

 

This has been another episode of Case in Point, a Good Law | Bad Law production.

Good Law | Bad Law #44 - Taking a Knee, First Amendment Rights In School W/ Josh Kershenbaum & Grace Osa-Edoh

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast series Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by two attorneys, Josh Kershenbaum and Grace Osa-Edoh from the law firm Frankel and Kershnbaum.  In this episode, we discuss First Amendment rights of elementary and high school students.

 

Recently, the “take a knee” movement has been catching a lot of people’s attention after President Trump began calling out the NFL and specific players, including Former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, for taking a knee during the National Anthem.  As attention has grown, more and more athletes as well as musicians (like Stevie Wonder) and even students in schools around the country have joined in “taking a knee.” 

 

The last point is where we focus our conversation.  Josh and Grace specialize in education law and cases against schools on behalf of students and their families.  We learn in this episode that students do not lose First Amendment protections on their speech just because they are in school, with a few exceptions.

Join us for this riveting conversation as we discuss the Take a Knee movement and some landmark Supreme Court cases in this area including Tinker and Barnette.

Good Law | Bad Law #43 - What is the Future of Health Care Reform — Part One, W/ Frank McClellan

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast series Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Frank McClellan, a Temple University Law School professor and Special Counsel at Freiwald Law.

 

Frank McClellan has a special interest in health care in our Country; teaching health care law at Temple and believing that our current system creates opportunities for discrimination and judgment by health care providers. Frank has been on the show before to discuss he book that talks about this exact subject, but today, he is in to talk about the “Affordable Care Act” or “Obama Care” and how it differs from the “American Health Care Act”.

 

This is the first in what will be a continuing series looking at the different health care options and proposals being talked about in our country and throughout the world. From a single-payer system, a multi-payer system, a private health care system, or a completely government run system. We want to examine all sides of the issue and present you with all the facts so you can make your own judgement.

 

If you are in the Philadelphia area and want to join Frank for a town hall discussion on health care send him an email at Frank@Temple.edu.

               The discussion will take place on Saturday, September 30th from 10am – 12pm at the Temple University Law School.

Good Law | Bad Law #42 - Convicted of A Crime You Didn’t Commit W/ Marissa Bluestine

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast series Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Marissa Bluestine, the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Innocence Project.

 

The name of the show is Good Law | Bad Law because we not only talk about the good in the law, how the law helps people, but also, the bad in the law, such as the criminal justice system failing people. The Pennsylvania Innocence Project is an organization that helps those who have been affected by a legal system that failed them; people that have been wrongfully convicted of a crime they didn’t commit.

 

Marissa Bluestine and Aaron Freiwald have an amazing conversation about not only what the PA Innocence Project does, but about many aspects of our criminal justice system, how people end up wrongfully convicted, the impact wrongful convictions have on society, and what we can do to make an impact.

CASE IN POINT | Hazing Prevention Week - Good Law | Bad Law

Last week was National Hazing Prevention week, a week where we think about and talk about hazing; how to prevent it, what it is, what it means, how to handle it, etc. In the news, we saw stories about Universities that are stepping up and making changes to their protocol to make an impact on the hazing epidemic.

 

But, hazing is not a one week a year problem. It’s not a one month a year problem. It’s a daily problem, one that happens everyday across all Universities and students of all different races, statuses, income levels, etc. So, as we move on from Hazing Prevention Week, as we go back to our normal lives, how can we make an impact on the problem the rest of the year? What are Universities doing to make an impact?

 

Aaron Freiwald mentions many stories that have recently come into light such as the LSU hazing incident that has led to a student’s death and the Penn State hazing incident that lead to another student’s death, and other stories that have come out, showing the epidemic that is hazing on college campuses.

 

This has been another episode of Case In Point, a Good law | Bad Law production.
