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.

Good Law | Bad Law #41 - The ACLU and The First Amendment W/ Reggie Shuford

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast series Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Reggie Shuford, the Executive Director for the Pennsylvania ACLU.

 

Today we’re talking about free speech and the ACLU’s involvement over the years protecting our first amendment right. The ACLU has been involved in some of the most controversial events regarding freedom of speech from the Skokie Illinois Nazi March, to the more recent events in Charlottesville Virginia.

 

In both of those cases the ACLU supported the rights of people who had an opinion or message they didn’t agree with.  One of the things Reggie points out in the episode is, the ACLU is an organization that stands for all civil rights and sometimes, they have to support people who have beliefs or messages that go against what they as people or even an organization believe. To him, it’s one of the things that makes the ACLU unique.

Good Law | Bad Law #40 - Second Amendment Rights W/ Joshua Prince

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast series Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by attorney Joshua Prince from, the Civil Rights Defense Firm, to discuss the Second Amendment and the issue of guns in schools.

 

Joshua Prince handles cases involving gun owners’ rights and the second amendment most notably the Goslin case. The Goslin case, found here, is a case involving a student who accidentally brought a pocket knife into school. Joshua became involved while the case was being appealed because he saw more was at stake. As he explains, this case could pave the way in guns in Pennsylvania schools.

 

We not only talk about the Goslin case, but also the Heller case, which in 2008 settled the question of whether an individual’s right to “bear arms” is found in the Second Amendment. Join us for this intriguing episode of Good Law | Bad Law.

Good Law | Bad Law #39 - Betsy Devos, Dear Colleagues W/ Attorney Laura Laughlin

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast series Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by attorney Laura Laughlin.

 

Today, on Good Law | Bad Law, Aaron and Laura talk about Title IX and the Dear Colleague letter. The Dear Colleague letter was the guidance for Title IX since it came out in 2011. Now, Betsy Devos has taken a new stance on Title IX which Laura discusses in her latest blog article http://www.freiwaldlaw.com/laws/changes-title-ix-enforcement.

 

This topic is especially important with the start of the new school year upon us. College women face a significantly higher threat of sexual assault than anyone else and this new stance has a direct impact on their wellbeing.
