This episode we jump into the debate over who is the best fictional lawyer.

It is time to vote in Abergel Goldstein & Partner’s All-Time Best Fictional Lawyer tournament. Voting opened this week for round one (part 1) - movie and sitcom lawyers. Voting for this first round closes at 5pm on December 9th. Each week there will be a new round of voting until one fictional lawyer is crown All-Time Best.

We also take a shallow dive into the University of Toronto Centre for Criminology & Social Studies criminological highlights to look at the latest data and research on criminal justice policy.

And then we finish off with a conversation about the directive to be issued by the Attorney General of Canada to federal prosecutors regarding prosecutions of non-disclosure in HIV cases.
